Crater Lake Post 1833
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.
Our common bond extends from the battlefield to exemplifying values like honor, courage, and commitment in everyday life. Whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, the War on Terror, or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns, your courage and sacrifice make a difference in defending and preserving world peace.
