Memorial Day 2019
"Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than visits to the troops, and once-a-year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well."….. Jennifer M. Granholm
With the help of our volunteers, the Memorial Day parade and picnic were a great success. Special thanks to our Auxiliary, Adjutant Chandler, Chaplin Monroe, and our city officials for their dedication to this event.

From the ohiotraveler
"Frontier Days in Milford began in 1965 as a way to celebrate the heritage of the Milford Miami Township area. Diverse groups such as church and school organizations, businesses and athletic associations, come together to make Frontier Days one of the area’s biggest annual events, and one of Ohio’s largest parades. Frontier Days has all the earmarks of a traditional hometown festival, including a big kickoff parade, great food and family fun. In past years, thousands of people have lined the streets of Milford to see the floats, bands and marching units. Frontier Days combines the distinct character of southwestern Ohio with the noise and color of a carnival…it’s all there, from balloons to bratwurst, from cotton candy to craft booths. The celebration is distinctively Milford’s, yet it’s meant to be shared. Anyone who has seen Frontier Days knows that sharing is something Milford does very well."
Once again the grounds at Victor Stier Post 450 were home to the Frontier Days celebration. With rides, games, food, and entertainment, this year’s Frontier Days was nothing but FUN!
Our food booth was busy but our volunteers did a bang-up job keeping the food coming.
Thank you to all those who helped with the food booth!

Flag Retirement Ceremony
When the United States flag (Old Glory) becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag, and the old flag should be "retired" with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's flag. The traditional method of retirement is to incinerate the flag, but this does not mean that one should simply drop the entire flag (intact) into a fire.
A flag ceases to be a flag when it is cut into pieces. In addition, it is easier to completely incinerate the flag, if it is cut into smaller pieces. A flag should never be torn up like an old bed sheet. It should be cut up with scissors or shears in a methodical manner. The corners of the flag should be stretched out over a table top and someone should cut the flag in half, vertically (be careful not to cut up the blue star field (see the figure). Then, place the two halves together and cut them in half, horizontally. You will end up with four pieces of flag, one being the blue star field.
The Troop #244 performed this beautiful ceremony, showing respect for the Flag and those who served to protect it.
Thank you to Troop #244 for your participation in this event.
4th District Picnic
The Fourth District Picnic was held at Victor Stier Post 450 on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019. A large turnout and the cooperation of Mother Nature made for a wonderful day. It was nice to get caught up with some old friend and make some new ones. There was grilled corn on the cob, hamburgers, hotdogs, brats, deserts, and several dishes brought by some of the attendees. A special thanks to Randy and "Pizza Bob" for working the hot grills all day. If you didn't make it this year, makes plans to attend next year, you'll be glad you did!
