To All Members and the General Public,

As the commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4692 Brazos Valley, it is with a sense of duty and commitment that I inform you of a significant change regarding our cherished establishment. Our post, with its proud history of over 75 years of continuous service, has been a pillar of support and camaraderie for veterans and the community alike.

Due to pressing facility issues, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the Foxhole Lounge, also known as our Canteen. This step is necessary to undertake essential refitting and to re-crew, ensuring that we can better serve both our veterans and the broader community in the future.

During this period, we remain steadfast in our mission and will continue to support meetings and events on a case-by-case basis. Our commitment to our members and the community remains unwavering, and we appreciate your understanding and support during this time of transition.

Sincerely,

Leonard "Leo" Rivera
Commander  
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4692 Brazos Valley
