(Updated 14 August 2011)

It has been a delightful and educational journey since the Auspicious Occasion
of the official installation of our new Chiang Mai Post on 17 January 2008.
Please check out the link below to see that

WE'VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY!


On the occasion of the imminent departure of Post 12074 Service Officer Michael Holmes to his new
digs in beautiful Idaho, our Post threw a Going Away Party for him on Friday, 10 June 2011.
The party was deemed a rousing success.

Comrade Holmes, in his role as our first Post Commander, was absolutely instrumental in getting
Chiang Mai Post 12074 started as a new VFW Post in the first place and his work as Service Officer,
which he will continue from afar, earned him the unequaled respect of one and all.

We will miss him a lot...
