Hello Again time for this months edition of the Stewards Corner. This is where I usually tell you about the happenings and going
on’s at the the West York VFW Post 8951. We are currently restricted to 25% capacity. There is very little available while we follow
the governors proclamation. You are restricted from sitting at the bar. You are restricted to wearing a mask while moving about.
You are restricted to ordering a meal while consuming a beverage. You are restricted to groups no larger than 8 at a table. You are
restricted to caring the proper papers if unable to wear a mask for medical reasons.
All of this seems to me, not to be the freedom that veterans risked life and limb to protect, but more a Stalin-Hitlerish nightmare
propagated on us all. Freedom as Merriam Webster defines it. The quality or state of being free: such as the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action. Liberation from slavery or the power of another. The ability of being frank, open, or outspoken.
Currently we are being coerced, constrained, and reduced to nothing but necessity, with out being allowed to chose or act in
any other manner. There is no liberation from slavery as the government seeks to control all aspects of all peoples lives. As for the
ability to be frank and open we all know that today that’s not permitted. If you do you could be attacked as I was, while having a
conversation in a supermarket checkout, with another customer. While referring to the checkout person as a young lady I was
attacked, chastised, and informed by her that she was a sir. It is more obvious than ever your freedoms are under attack.
Most of you would be surprised to find out I have no answers for you. All we can do here, is to do as we’re told, so you have a
safe place to go meet friends and some have fun again. Thank you to all of those that have supported us in this time of crisis in our
As Always Hope to See You Soon,
Larry E. Myers
