"The men and women of VFW Post 1316 take great pride in our Post and our History."
Curnie Bryant, Commander VFW Post 1316
must participate in each year such as – Patriots Pen, Teacher of the Year, Scout of the Year, Buddy Poppy Drive. I am confident that with your support we will successfully accomplish these programs as well as any other program that might occur during the year.
One of the goals I would like to set is improving our membership and volunteerism.
Another goal is to be more active in our local community, let’s get to know our neighbors, and help in any way we can. Our community outreach needs to include various businesses and neighborhoods. With your help, we can accomplish these goals.
I have a long-term goal of improving the infrastructure of our facility; let us work together to upgrade, modify and modernize it. Together we can accomplish this.
I would like to thank all the volunteers who support our Post and make it a success. Our canteen staff and our members step up and help out anytime we have an event.
Lastly, I would like to personally thank Calvin Anderson, Kenneth Craig, L.C. Parks, and Dishoungh White, and others for helping me to work towards getting the suspension lifted for our post. With that being said, the suspension of VFW Post 1316 was lifted by the State of Arkansas VFW on June 12, 2021. The canteen will reopen for public business sometime in mid to late July.
Our official VFW Post-1316 meeting will be on every second Monday of the month at 6:30 pm, House Committee board meeting will start at 5 pm.
I look forward to working with you all and encourage you to contact me with any concerns, comments, or suggestions you may have. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me thru our website email@example.com.
Let us all pledge to remain a vibrant, visible-to-the-public, patriotic organization! Again, thank you all for what you do.

I also want to congratulate the other officers elected alongside me; together we will strive to be an excellent team that leads with devotion and efficiency.
I look forward to working with our auxiliary to collaborate on various activities. As a Post, we cannot be successful without our symbiotic relationship with our Auxiliary.
