Good that is what is needed at Post 203! And facts are posted here! A lot of us veterans have been forced not to come to the meetings! Dayton officers need to stay in dayton! Why are you thieves in spring city? We have veterans that are hungry and your giving boxes to bingo players! You should be ashamed of yourselves! If you can afford to go to bingo you can afford to buy your own dam food! This veteran knows exactly what your doing down there! This veteran also knows what you dam Dayton people are trying to pull on the auxiliary ladies! They own half of the kitchen and half of the auxiliary room! Go to the Dayton legion your azz's are not wanted in Spring City! Nor are your illegal activities wanted in our town! Your giving boxes of food to bingo players because get a clue they can't afford to GAMBLE! And you dam dayton crooks aren't getting shit for Christmas! Feed the poor not the gamblers! And leave the auxiliary ladies alone they do more for this community then you do! Ask around what these ladies have done ask who they have fed ask what they have done for veterans.these ladies are quietly helping veterans! There is one veteran in town that is fed 2 times a week the meal cooked and taken to his home! You veterans are a disgrace to Post 203 that commander has chased away 24 men in the last 4 years alone! Your illegal elections and your illegal activities! The dam lies you tell,your a disgrace to the honorable veterans in the area! Why wait till next year? Resign today and let Post 203 bring in the New Year with decent blood in office!
Nothing new

That post has needed new officers ever since they ran me off for suggesting they have a dance on Fiday nights. And as far as the ladies side goes that commander has never never given those women any respect, I personally have seen him curse at them tell them they were no good! I have heard stories of him going to hit these women and he has no right in these women's business! This commander and his daughter have been in the building to long! The illegal gambling has lined their pockets for years! And as far as the food boxes go there has always been abuse in that area! Those that delivered boxes were able to get a box of food. Bingo players have always gotten boxes and should be ashamed of themselves for gambling if they can't afford to feed themselves! Very few veterans are given boxes that need it. Yes we have lots of very needy people in the area that should receive boxes. But bingo players never should get a box of food they are there gambling if they need a box of food they should not be gambling! This has been going on for years! People are gambling in that building that can not afford to gamble! They don't care they want the money skimmed off the top of the bingo money! The building is full of greed! I pay my dues to. Nashville, I'll be damned if I give those who hold office down there a fricken dollar of mine. Clean the officers out and by god somebody who knows how to audit books, audit those books! Paint the building inside and out get the smell out! Take the bingo board down and put in a dance floor! Bring out those pretty widows and let me shake a leg with em' put a smile on their face!

It's a shame that the money source comes first. Couldn't they do something else beside illegal bingo? Other organization's plan dinners and other things in the community,and don't have to take care of their money source. Why don't they do something like that? They seem to survive. And don't they have like 20 to 25 people every week playing illegal bingo? Those people should realize that the veterans and the needy come first. What they are doing is against the law in Tn. to begin with. It just doesn't make sense to me if you don't have the money to gamble and your needy why are they gambling? They have to have a gambling problem. But they should not get food that is intended for the needy who are hungry, for gosh sakes it's Christmas. Illegal bingo has been going on in this town for years, why our little town where there are so many poor people? The American Legion is supposed to take care of the veterans in need who have put their life on the line for us. The gamblers have done nothing for our country but collect off the government. Gambler's should not get a food box. The veterans and the poor people should get a food box. What about the homeless in our area? Why not open the doors Christmas Day Veterans and cook a turkey dinner for the homeless? Why don't you start doing some good with that building instead of breaking the law gambling? Word around town is the Saint Jude function that you have is also illegal because you don't have the proper certificates to do the event. Than you put your picture in the paper like you've done something good. Where is that picture by the way? I know people who are waiting on that! Do you want this building shut down? Where did you get this building anyway? Are they aware of the illegal activities going on? Never mind I won't get a straight from you but the courthouse will know who owns this building and I'm going to let them know what's going on. Your feeding people who are illegally gambling and allowing people who are needy to go without Christmas dinner! This is a disgrace to our community. This is not a charitable organza ion. What would you call what they are doing down there? I'll be contacting Saint Jude to make them aware of the illegal money they received. I haven't seen anything in the paper have I missed it? I'll still be making a phone call what the veterans are doing down there is making a mockery out of our military! All of you veterans who attend this illegal function should be ashamed of yourselves. Your fellow brothers are going hungry so you can keep your money source. And what about the hungry people in this town! Someone Needs to stop this before the food boxes go out to the illegal gamblers!

Members?? Your members are on here trashing you? LMAO I thought it was the towns people who are sick and tired of your illegal activities! Now if your members are writting some of these "FACTS" your got BIG trouble in that building! I have always protested the illegal gambling in that building! You don't give even half back to our community what you take in on a Saturday night! I sit and watch you veterans over half the people that go in there to gamble on Saturday night collect a gov't check! On food stamps and welfare! I work my azz off for those people to gamble illegally right in the middle of town! The police drive by stop and chat knowing that those standing outside puffing on cigarettes are breaking the law! The police have been called there for fighting I have even seen an ambulance and the police there at the same time. It makes our police force look like they are stupid! What is wrong with this town? Bingo is against the law in TENNESSEE! Stop the gambling in the American Legion you are no better than anyone else and you have no right to break the law and get away with it! Now your giving food boxes to illegal gamblers instead of to the poor in town. Your no dam good ! You SUCK! People in this town are poor and hungry and you give food to illegal bingo players. God is watching you!

Blah blah blah they have been promising to take their two-faced azzs else where for years! Promises promises that's all they ever say! One for sure that needs to go is that witch of a woman ! Snob city thinks she's better than everybody acts like she likes you than talks behind your back! People talk T.and you should be ashamed of yourself! Your a big trouble maker! You and your family have run decent people off from the American Legion. You even tell lies on people to others so you have something to talk about! Small minds talk about others, smart minds speak of current affairs. You shun veterans out of a building that they should feel welcome in! Oh yeah and by the way Veteran Someone took a picture of your little hand trick around Saint Jude time. Sorry they didn't get your face but it's the shirt you were wearing and two people saw it with their own eyes. And yes they know who it was. They heard rumors at first than the picture was sent! Just wanted them to know you we're not their friend! Your a spoiled selfish individual you shall met the rath of the almighty one day. Stop playing illegal bingo at the American Legion gambling is illegal in the state of Tn. Oh by the way I'll see you tonight at ILLEGAL BINGO.

What is so hard about this matter? Why aren't the police stopping this illegal gambling? They are committing a crime so why aren't they raided? The police know of the illegal gambling! So why are they allowing it? I didn't believe this stuff on here but when you start asking around people will tell you it is going on! I just don't understand why they are not made to stop? The police are to arrest people who are breaking the law! They take an oath to do so. Why aren't they doing their job? Does anyone know? Has anyone called dispatch on a Saturday night and make them go there? Tell dispatch your sick and tired of the illegal gambling and you want an officer there to make arrests they are committing a crime! Has anyone ever tried calling dispatch? We pay our taxes! The cops have to answer calls! We need to start calling dispatch the entire time they ate playing and insist they make them stop. Let's start calling them at six o'clock and if they don't go keep calling then call the sheriff dept we can do this people. Might take persistents but it will get them shut down. What do you think about this idea? Or is Doster behind this? She controls this town being the city manager. Maybe we need to call Vicki Doster and ask her what's going on? If she is out of the office leave a message as to why bingo is going on and it needs to stop! Leave message after message if she does nothing I know where to go next. Has anyone does these things. If not let's start today calling city hall and the police if nothing is done on Saturday heads will spin in this town! Full blown investigation! Let's see it the town does something first, make the calls post than I will make the needed call and than post. People this does not have to continue! Have a good day I can help you call your city police call the sheriff the mayor and city manager. If the illegal gambling goes on Saturday I'll make the necessary phone call and I don't think your towns going to like it much. Post and let me know.

The American Legion Auxiliary women have gotten a lawyer! The women have found out the city is in violation of following state laws! Hey city manager better tell the chief of police to shut down illegal bingo on Saturday nights. But don't worry your still in trouble there is evidence of the American Legion playing bingo! And I'm gonna get in touch with them women cause I have to pay my grandma's utilities! And they have illegally taken money from her they lied said it was legal. bingo is illegal in the state of Tn. Those veterans in office at post 203 you are criminals. And Spring City is in violation of following state laws! This is soooo serious! Hey maybe this was your plan on how to get tourism in spring city. Think news crews will come from all over to take a picture of post 203? Hope they do not eat here nor buy gas! The town is breaking state laws! Close the building down ! They do one or two things for a veteran a year and that's it!And they choose who it is. You Dayton veterans keep your mouths and hands off our spring women. You served our country? Cowards hit women cowards verbally abuse women! Stay in Dayton and treat those women with disrespect. Leave our Spring City women all do not ever abuse them again!

The woman's husband will be here tomorrow. Heard he is PIZZED OFF BIG TIME! See his wife liked the commander and he donated a bunch of money down there. When the commander told her the post was broke he donated lots of money so the post could raise money! They did it through an auction if I remember right And the Post wasn't even broke they lied to her! He's some big wig at a manger construction company. His father was a World War 11 veteran and fought in Korea. He was some kinda officer when he came out. No man wants another man i his wife's face calling her a LARD ASS! And I have seen his wife she isnot a LARD ASS. She's not a bad looking woman in my opinion anyways. Those veterans down there are a bunch of takers and give back nothing not even a thank you. Hey you so called commander... guess what you called a GEBERAL'S SONS WIFE A LARD ASS! LOL All you city officals better lay low cause she's the one who went for an attorney and I'm not sure but I think it's Edna who had to get on nerve medicene cause of what the commander said. And he lovs those pld people! Heard her adopted dad is all tore up over this too!

My company gave a a donation to this organazation for a fund raiser to Saint Jude Hospital and Shriners hospital. My company's donation has yet to be deposited! So we'll be making a stop payment on our check, it is recommanded that any company that gave to this organazation should do the same.
Anyone who has any common sense knows fundraiser money is to be turned in within 30 days. If anyone has seen the Wednesday paper in the community section one veteran from Post 203 raised money to provide the veterans in the Spring City Nursing home a Christmas. We did a little more investigating and the American Legion Post 203 never goes to visit these men. The illegal game they hold on Saturday nights called game night is to provide for the care of veterans. I praise this one mans works for going out into the community and raising funds so veterans in the nursing home could have a Christmas. This man is a saint in my companies eyes. Shame on this organazatiion for using or serveman as a front for an illegal operation, bingo is illegal in our state (TN). What they do with this money is beyond our companies comprehension. Shame on your American Legion what did you do with the money you claimed was for children with cancer, and children who are sick? And the money you get from bingo does not go to help our veterans in need. The community needs to be aware of the scam you are running using the veterans as a front. And to the man Mr. Hackler God will bless you forever, for single handling taking care of the veterans in our community. You need to take your membership to a post that is not corrupt and actually provides for our veterans.
