No One Does More For Veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
We welcome you to VFW Post 2562, Silver Spring Memorial Post.



Welcome Back!

·       Welcome Back one and all!  We look forward to seeing everyone at Post 2562.  In order to keep everyone safe, we are asking your cooperation with the following rules:If you aren’t feeling well, have a fever or cough, please stay home

·       You MUST wear a mask when entering and exiting the Post

·       You MUST sign in on the register as you enter, including your name and phone number (NOT the Post number).  This includes members of Post 2562, Auxiliary 2562, and visitors.

·       Order your drinks at the Pass; we have installed a plexiglass barrier to protect our bartenders

·       Take a seat, physically distanced from others.  There is no standing or seating at the bar.

·       If the Canteen area seems full, there are overflow tables set up in the Memorial Hall that you may use.

·       The pull-tab machines are closed, but the bowl is open

·       Beverages will be served in plastic cups; we are not using glass at this time

·       The bartenders have been tasked with reminding people of these rules; as things change, we will do our best to inform you

We are working hard at keeping everyone safe and working hard to get back together.  We thank you for your cooperation.

                                                                                                           Respectfully Submitted,

                                                                                                    Eric Linthicum, Commander
