Statement on Afghanistan
As a Commander, I find myself in a new role and I’m doing a lot of reflecting on my experience as a Navy veteran of 21 years. My experience is similar, but so vastly different from most of the warriors that associate themselves with our post.
I am very blessed and honored to know and to be able to associate with you men and women at Tattler. There is a proverb that said laughter is one of the best medicines and when you get together with people that have experienced some of the same things you have, you can open up and share and laugh together, which helps us to heal.
That’s what Tattler American legion Post 973 is about. We’re about fellowship and looking out for veterans and their families. My job in the service was to support warriors, my job now continues to be to support warriors. The Tattler Post is here to support you and we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming events. Thank you all for your service. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need help or support.
Yours in Comradeship,
Commander Shawn M. LaFleur
Tattler Post 973
you are not alone
For any of our veterans going through a difficult time with the news coming out of Afghanistan, please know that you’re not alone and there are a lot of us going through the same thing. If you need someone to talk to, remember that there are great resources in the community like the Road Home Program at Rush, at the VA, and our team here is always willing to sit down with our people.
Please feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or at Contact@Tattlerpost.org or our service officer at Service@Tattlerpost.org, or myself at Brent.Webb@tattlerpost.org or any other way you can get in touch with us.
You’re not alone and we’ll get through everything alright. Very thankful to have served alongside you all, we did our duty to our nation, let’s make sure we take care of each other now.
-Past Commander Webb
