Commander’s Corner
2012 is just around the corner, I hope that it is far better than 2011 was for all. We have done a lot since January 1, but there
is still more to do.
First the bad news:
Membership is down, we need to continue to work it, as hard as possible.
We had NO entries for VOD scholarship program, We are taking a look to see how we can fix this.
We only had 9 entries for Patriot's Pen, Again we 'll have to work on it.
We had 0 Teacher award nominees.
Good news:
We have finished re-chartering of the Boy Scout Troop 1003 and Cub Scout Pack 4003.
We purchased Boy Scout Troop 1003 a new unit flag.
We have several Eagle scouts coming up.
We had Eagle Scout, Brady and his crew paint the post, outside.
We replaced our signs.
We had the parking lot coated and striped.
We got several hundred pieces of medical equipment we didn't need, to people that did.
We had a Veteran's Appreciation Day in the city park on Oct 1.
We held a District 6 meeting November 6th.
We held a POW-MIA ceremony on POW-MIA.
We received a $100 donation from Harrisonville Middle School, Future Business Leaders of America for the VSO program.
We donate $100 to the Warrensburg Veterans Home for their Christmas celebration.
We had meeting with the 1139th MP Co troops and explained to them about the VA and that we are here to help! Big
Thanks!!!! to Norma Balridge and James Jones.
And probably more than a few things I've forgotten
At both the post and district level it is becoming increasingly difficult to get information out in a timely fashion. As such we
are requesting that everyone who has email send an email to the post so that we have your current address, phone number,
and email where you can be reached. These will be used for our post and will also be used to verify the information with
National. If you don’t have access to email, give us a call so we can get the current information down. Thank you for your
help with this matter.
We have a new website and Facebook Page This
newsletter will be published there, as well as any and all info I get between newsletters and meetings. If you would like to
receive said information, go to Select the post information tab at the top, then select news-
letter, from here enter you name and an email address and select subscribe. You will then get an email each time something
is added to the website.
The district also has a new website the subscription process is the same, then any and all District
6 information, I receive between meetings will also get to you.
For those of you that don't have a computer or don't want to attempt these processes, ask someone to download it for you
and print it out, a grand child or another member. I understand your feelings about computers. But this is the most efficient
way and soon will be the only way, information will be disseminated, between all the meetings. So stay informed and up to
date with the latest information.
The published newsletter is going to a quarterly event so these emails and updates are going to become more important to
keep up with what is happening in the VFW. As always call me @ 816-738-4186 or email at for any

     Post Member Takes Honor Flight
November 8th was a special day for one of our post members. Ed Rigby had the privilege of taking an Honor Flight to
Washington DC to tour the nations military memorials. For those who have not heard of this program, let me tell you how it

The Honor Flight Network of Kansas City is a non-profit group whose mission is to transport our World War II and termi-
nally ill veterans to Washington DC to tour the nations military memorials. This service is provided completely free of
charge to the veterans through generous donations from various companies around the Kansas City area. Check out their
website at :

Ed’s day began about 4:30am at the Kansas City International Airport. A meet and greet session with the other 50 veterans going on the
flight along with each veterans assigned guardian. They departed Kansas City on a chartered U.S. Airways Airbus for their trip. Once
they arrived at Regan National Airport they were greeted with a band and a lot of people waiting to shake their hands and say thank you
for all that they have done.

Then on to two chartered buses and off to the World War II Memorial and a meeting with Senator Clair McCaskill and Senator Roy
Blunt. A tour of the memorial and a chance to take in this awesome site and then Bob Dole and his wife Elizabeth arrives. He is the one
who pushed the hardest to make this memorial possible.. They take time to meet all the veterans and pose for pictures until everyone has
had their chance.

Back on the buses and off to the Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The group
arrives at Arlington National Cemetery to watch the changing of the guard and attend a wreath laying ceremony. At this point Ed finds
out he has been selected to participate in the ceremony. And he thought his day couldn’t get any better.

Next comes the Air Force Memorial and as the sun sets the Marine Corps War Memorial. What a day it has been. Back on the busses one
more time for the trip back to the airport and their flight home. On the flight home they were treated to “Mail Call” where the veterans
get letters from family members and other representatives expressing their gratitude for all that they have done.

When the plane lands at 9:30 pm they are greeted by several men wearing Revolutionary War garb with flags and music. They are each
presented with a book about the World War II Memorial to commemorate their day. All in all this is not a bad way to spend your Tues-
day. When you see Ed around the post ask him about his trip. He will smile from ear to ear and tell you what a great day he had.

Patriot’s Pen Awards were won in November by 7th grade students of the Harrisonville Christian School. Ty Cook won 1st
place with his essay on “Why am I Proud of My Country?” Ty was awarded a $200 U. S. Savings Bond. Caleb Dreyer won
2nd place and was awarded a $100 U. S. Savings Bond. 3rd place was won by Davis Bockelman and was awarded a $50 U. S.
Savings Bond.
Thanks to all your help with the Buddy Poppy drive! Because of all the hard work and contributions we will be making dona-
tions to each of Missouri’s VA Homes for Christmas. Thank you for all the donations of socks, shirts and money to enable us
to donate to the Kansas City VA Hospital. Auxiliary Ladies will be visiting the hospital right before Christmas to take in the

please send the dues amount of $15 to Sue Spradlin, Treasurer, 25409 E 327th St. Harrisonville, MO 64701.

date and time on your calendar as a reminder. We always have a social hour in the club room after the meeting. Please join us!


How close to retirement are you?
Do you have plans? It is not something that you decide on today to do tomorrow.
Many people stress out when retirement arrives. Are you ready for it? Financially, mentally, physically?
Did you know putting a little aside regularly when you are young can add up to a nice retirement?
Do you have a budget or do you just spend? Do you know where your money goes? Do your habits cost you more than just money? Fast
food can be handy, but most of the time they can eat up ones finances. If done on a regular basis, it can eat up your health.
If all you do is work, work, work…what will you do once you retire? Can you think of at least five ways to spend your time…not necessari-
ly expensive ways? If not, why not start developing them?? Do you have hobbies? Do you have friends, human or animal? What would hap-
pen if your health fails you, can you still find something to enjoy?
What are you doing to keep yourself physically fit? Schedule 5-10 minutes daily to start if you don’t have a routine …maybe just marching
in place or chair exercises with stretches. Just remember, you should be able to breathe easily while exercising. Did you know exercise
equipment is not necessary, so no excuse!!
Take time to think about it. Every career has its challenges, but you can also find blessings…sometimes you just have to dig deeper!!
Scouts have a great motto, “Be prepared” May 2012 be filled with blessings.
Be creative!!! Enjoy life and those you care about.                                                 Fallen Comrades

VFW National Home for Children

Since its founding in 1925, the VFW National Home for Children has grown from an old frame farm house to a sprawling
campus with playgrounds, park areas, and multiple buildings, including single-family homes, a community center and gym-
nasium, child care center, guest lodge, chapel and administrative offices.

The National Home’s services have also evolved to meet the changing needs of America’s military and veterans’ families.
Through their Helpline and on-campus programs, they are able to help families and children through times of crisis, both on
their beautiful campus and in individual communities nationwide.

Each month during the VFW monthly meeting, a prayer is said for the National Home for Children. Is it just words or have
you been there? It is located in Eaton Rapids, MI.

This year, I was fortunate enough to go and represent our Post.

Each October, both Missouri and Wisconsin Posts take turns sponsoring the programs…food and treats for the kids and their
families are furnished. At least one bus is chartered for the trip or individuals can choose to drive their own vehicles. The bus
was loaded with snacks, movies, and offered a lot of time for developing friendships.

There were about 75 kids this year at the community. The kids were filled with food then bags of candy and treats brought
by members of various Missouri and Wisconsin Posts. Games and contests took place in their community center/gymnasium
including: costume judging for everyone from infants to adults with prizes given to the top three in each of multiple catego-
ries. Creative pumpkin decorating was a big event with tables full of entries plus lots more games and fun.

One Missouri Post brought their group of Junior Girl’s Auxiliary members. The girls from ages about 5 to 16 raised money
to pay their way to the event, plus presented their donations during the opening ceremony. (The girls along with other Post
members were able to dress up and take part in the costume judging…)

Part of the trip included tours of two of the 40 plus housing units….the Wisconsin and the Missouri Units. Both were two
story, single home units. The Missouri Unit supported a young mother and her two young boys. We were told the Wisconsin
unit was the residence of a widow and her three adolescents. (Some of these took part in dressing up in costumes and won.)

Although it was very cool, the sun was bright for the ribbon cutting ceremony presenting the opening of two new units. The
two units were three bedrooms with a basement, handicap accessible kitchen plus a deck which was to be completed. These
brick units were named the Air National Guard and Air Force Units.

It was an eventful two day trip which was impressive to see and witness the results of what we sponsor and offer monthly
prayers. It was stressed to share the Helpline number for both veterans and their dependents which offer assistance .

Helpline 800.313.4200. May you have blessed 2012

                                                  TRICARE Data Breach:
Pentagon contractor SAIC lost backup data tapes that contained personal information on almost 4.9 million TRICARE patients
who were treated at San Antonio military facilities going back to 1992. TRICARE officials said the tapes included Social Se-
curity numbers, addresses, birth dates and some health information, but no credit card or bank account numbers. TRICARE
believes the risk of compromise to be low due to the sophistication of the software, but as a precaution, SAIC will provide one
year of credit monitoring and restoration services to patients who express concern about their credit. Concerned patients can
call the SAIC Incident Response Call Center toll-free at 855-366-0140, or international callers can call collect to 952-556-
8312. The call center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern). Read more at

The Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office announced the identification of remains belonging to four airmen and one sol-
dier who had been missing in action from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Returned are:
* Army Air Forces Staff Sgt. John J. Bono, 28, of Denver. On Sept. 13, 1944, Bono and eight other crewmembers were on a
B-17G Flying Fortress that crashed near Neustaedt-on-the-Werra, Germany. Only one crewman successfully parachuted out of
the aircraft before it crashed.
* Army Air Forces 1st Lt. Stephen L. Pascal, 20, of Hollywood, Calif. On April 7, 1945, Pascal was flying a photo recon-
naissance mission between Gottingen and Alfeld, Germany, when his P-38 Lightning aircraft went missing.
* Army Cpl. Theodore A. Reynolds, 19, of Syracuse, N.Y. In November 1950, Reynolds, who was serving in the
Company B, 2nd Chemical Mortar Battalion attached to the 8th Cavalry Regiment of the 1st Cavalry Division, went
missing during a battle near Unsan, North Korea.
* Army Lt. Col. Glenn McElroy, 35, of Sidney, Ill., and Capt. John M. Nash, 28, of Tipton, Ind. On March 15,
1966, the men were flying an OV-1A Mohawk aircraft that failed to return from a reconnaissance mission over
southern Laos in Savannakhet Province.

                                        Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA)
                                     Urges All Veterans Exposed to Agent Orange
                                           Be Screened for Prostate Cancer
(Washington, D.C.) "Veterans exposed to Agent Orange are at least twice as likely to develop prostate cancer; their recurrence
rates are higher; and recurring cancers are more aggressive," noted Dr. Thomas Berger, Executive Director of VVA's Veterans
Health Council, before today's Congressional Men's Health Caucus Prostate Cancer Task Force. Berger urged his fellow Vi-
etnam veterans to get screened, noting "it's worth the fight." Said Berger, "Some three million veterans served in Southeast
Asia, and no one knows for sure how many of these veterans were exposed to Agent Orange." In 1996 the Institute of Medi-
cine of the National Academy of Sciences concluded there is "limited evidence of a positive association between prostate can-
cer and exposure to herbicides used in Vietnam, including Agent Orange." As a result of IOM's findings, Jesse Brown, then-
Secretary of the Veterans Administration (VA), issued the final rule, recognizing prostate cancer as a service-connected, pre-
sumptive disease associated with exposure to Agent Orange and other phenoxy herbicides during military service, allowing
such exposed veterans to become eligible for VA disability compensation and health care.

In 2008, University of California-Davis Cancer Center physicians released results of research showing Vietnam veterans ex-
posed to Agent Orange have greatly increased risks of prostate cancer and even greater risks of getting the most aggressive
form of the disease as compared to those who were not exposed. The research was also the first to use a large population of
men in their 60s and the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. More than 13,000 Vietnam veterans enrolled in the VA Northern
California Health Care System were stratified into two groups, exposed or not exposed to Agent Orange between 1962 and
1971. Based on medical evaluations conducted between 1998 and 2006, the study revealed that:

        *twice as many Agent Orange-exposed men were identified with prostate cancer than non-exposed;
        *Agent Orange-exposed men were diagnosed two-and-a-half years younger than non-exposed; and
        *Agent Orange-exposed men were nearly four times more likely to present with metastatic disease than non-exposed.

Further buttressing this link, in 2009, a study of 1,495 veterans in five cities who underwent radical prostatectomy to remove
their cancerous prostates showed 206 exposed to Agent Orange had a near 50 percent increased risk of their cancer recurring,
despite the cancer seeming nonaggressive at the time of surgery. And the cancer came back with a vengeance. The time it took
the prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, level to double – an indicator of aggressiveness – was eight months versus more than 18
months in non-exposed veterans.
                                    IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT WALGREENS
           You have many options for filling your prescriptions – It’s important to Act Now! Time is Running Out!
           There is an important change to your pharmacy benefit effective January 1, 2012 concerning Walgreens.
Walgreens will no longer be part of the Express Scripts pharmacy network as of Jan. 1, 2012. If you continue to fill
your prescriptions at a Walgreens pharmacy you will have to pay 100% of your prescription costs and submit a pa-
per claim for NON-NETWORK reimbursement, which will dramatically increase your out of pocket costs.
   Walgreens remains in the pharmacy network through Dec. 31, 2011, but the time for you to act is now. There are more
than 56,000 pharmacies in the TRICARE network, excluding Walgreens. On average, there is another network pharmacy
within one-half mile of any Walgreens. Now is also a good time to consider moving the medication you take on an ongoing
basis to TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery. By choosing TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery, you get:
Savings that add up quickly – generic medications are available in 90 day supply for $0, formulary medications are $9 for
a 90 day supply and non-formulary medications are $25 for a 90 day supply. Save a minimum of 67% on every prescrip-
tion, every time.
Convenient delivery and refills – medications are delivered right to your mailbox so you should never run out of your
medications again! Your refills come automatically, or you can chose to get refill reminders and reorder by mail, phone, or
Safety second to none – your prescriptions are checked for accuracy and potential drug interactions by registered pharma-
cists with 99.99% accuracy
Personal service – speak to a pharmacist anytime, day or night, from the privacy of your own home.
ACT NOW! Use your benefit wisely, save money for yourself, avoid the additional out of pocket expense of using a
non-network pharmacy – and help get the best value for you and the TRICARE program.
Getting started with TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery is easy - simply go online and in a few clicks, you’re done!
   Visit and click on the ‘Get Started with Home Delivery’ pill bottle link on the left
hand side of the screen.
All you need to have on hand is:
Your sponsor ID number
Your doctor’s name, fax number and phone number
Your current prescription bottles
Should TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery not be for you, you have numerous, convenient options to fill your prescrip-
tions. There are over 56,000 pharmacies in the TRICARE network, excluding Walgreens. That’s basically two times the
total number of Starbucks and McDonald’s stores nationwide combined. You can find other retail pharmacies by visiting To transfer to another pharmacy, simply take your current prescription
bottle to the pharmacy of your choice and they will be happy to assist you.
Remember, if you fill a prescription at Walgreens after Dec. 31, 2011, you will pay 100% of the cost and you will need to
file a paper claim for non- network benefit reimbursement. Non-network reimbursement varies depending on whether you
are a Prime or Standard beneficiary. In either case, you must meet a deductible first before receiving any reimbursement.
Once your deductible is met, Prime beneficiaries will have to pay 50% of the cost of the medication and Standard benefi-
ciaries will have to pay up to 20% of the medication cost. You can avoid paying more for your pharmacy care by switching
your Walgreens prescription to either Home Delivery or an in-network retail pharmacy today.
The present economic times require us all to make wise decisions about how our precious healthcare dollars are spent. With
so many less expensive options for filling your prescriptions, you can help save TRICARE tens of millions of dollars annu-
ally and, if you choose TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery, you save too.

                                          The DD-214's Is Now On Online.
The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following web site for veterans to gain access to their DD-
214's online: This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for
employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies
of documents from their military files. Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now
use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. Other individuals with a need for documents must
still complete the Standard Form 180, which can be downloaded from the online web site. Because the requester will be
asked to supply all information essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has to ask
veterans for additional information will be minimized. The new web-based application was designed to provide better ser-
vice on these requests by eliminating the records center mailroom and processing time.
