Leave us alone. We fought for our freedom and you politicians would not have what you have if it wasn't for us. The remarks that Boss Hog has made about the VFW will catch up to him. Most of the council supports the VFW. We should get more support from town government. We keep to our selves and support our town and sheriff. The remarks made have upset some of our men who fought for you. Boss Hog want get a second term.
You should know better than to put something like this on topix. All you've succeeded in doing is getting others talked about & not the one you were aiming for.
They do good work & will continue to do so despite what some think of it or them. Could'nt care less! lol @ the pot calling the kettle black. Let's put up your name & see what folks have to say about you... or... is it already on here?!:)

Rom may have good intentions but he and his family cant keep their noses out of pills. Most people who go there are druggies. That place needs to be shut down for good. After all the fights, pills, and chaos, I am glad Tom is stepping down.

Tom is a good man and all but the VFW is truely a joke. It is not ran like any other VFW. There is always fights going on and under age kids in there drinking. The place is supose to be for our Vets and their families not just any and everyone that wants to go. Unfortunately there are fewer Vets and more idiots there than anything. I say keep our minor children out of that damn place and kick out the idiots and make the place a real damn VFW.

Let the VETS handle their own. They handled everything that has been slung at them in war and peace. They can handle that just fine all by themselves.

Let me tell you something about that damn place. Last year my 16 year old daughter went there with friends. They failed to card her and served her alcohol. Her best friend called me because my baby was real sick. I had to go to that place and drag her out. She was so sick that I had to take her to the ER where she was treated for alcohol poisoning. None of her friends with her were of age and I noticed there were several other children there as well. Don't tell me to let those VETS handle their own when they are serving minors alcohol. Real VETS don't do things like that and this my dear I know for a fact. Most of my family are VETS who gave some and I have a few who gave all. So before you start popping off at the mouth you should know that place brings shame on our responsible VETS.

This may be the case but what responsibility did you hold your daughter to for being in a bar and drinking at 16? I am just checking to see if your one of those parents who places blame other places or shares the blame for a child being in a place where it should have known better to in the first place.

First and foremost I am a very strict parent and my daughter is a good girl. She had never pulled anything like that before and is not exposed to it at home. She was supose to be stayin all night with her friend whom I always thought was a good girl. I know teenagers get curious about these things, but I assumed she knew better. God knows she has been taught better. I can honestly say that I was truely shocked that the VFW let her in without a proper ID. I was even more shocked that they served her alcohol. I am just thankful that her friend whom had also been drinking called me to pick my daughter up. I called and told her mother what was going on and told her that I suggested she pick her daughter up as well. Since the incident my daughter no longer associates with the so called friend and has not touched alcohol again. After she got home and rested up I did call the law to have a talk with my daughter about under age drinking and try to scare her enough to teach her a lesson. So far so good, like I said she has not touched it again. Thank God.

I would say that the "so called" friends mother probably thinks the same of your daughter.

At a normal vfw you must be a vet or guest of a vet to even get in the door that place is not a real vfw the only reason it uses the name vfw is to sell liquor and if the right vet walks in it will be over because the first thing he will do is start asking all those ppl if they are vets or what the vets name is that got them in.
Should be a vet at the door checking this and every one can't be invited by one person unless it is his birthday!

Sheety stay away from the VFW, you are way to destructive and would cause more problems than they need. I don't care if you are a vet or not. If you are, then stand up and act like one. Act like you have a little bit of dignity and pride. Instead of a tale packing, trouble making old hen.

The Mother of the 16yr old should have called the police immediately. Selling to underage kids is illegal. I agree with Semperfi. ATF and AFW officials should come in and clean out that place. I know several Vets who won't go there because of the way they allow everyone in there.

If you aren't a Vet, or a Vet's guest you'd better stay away. I heard the place has been under investigation for several months and several arrests are coming.

V.F.W=veterans from war not a club for general public sorry you have the pub or café.many laws have been broken not only local laws he made a promise to. Uncle Sam when he opened it to serve the vets so he gets tax breaks discounts from venders all in the name of the American soldiers who have served this country.
I know 40+ vets that won't go in that place wonder why!
They all live in this area !
