31 MAY 21 Memorial Day 989 Cruises The NNS Veterans Home

After concluding devotions at the Northern Nevada State Veterans Cemetery in Fernley, Members of Chapter 989 with our Flag Trailer were joined by other members of local veterans organizations and local car and motorcycle clubs to “Cruise” the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home in Sparks. The cruise is our way of letting the residents know that they are not forgotten, especially on this most hallowed day of the year for veterans and their families. What started as an “afterthought” after the Fernley Memorial Day event in 2020 has grown into a good size “Cruise” in 2021. Who knows…perhaps we’ll actually publicize and make the cruise “official” in 2022 and use the occasion as a fund raiser for the residents of the Vets home.

13 APR 18 Spartan Pledge VAMC Reno

The VA held a Spartan Pledge in Reno to address suicide among those who’ve served in the military. Members of VVA 989 and AVVA assisted by ushering veterans and helped serve lunch.
The pledge created by Boone Cutler gives veterans a mission to seek another veteran before taking their life – a subject that’s often taboo among veterans.
The Spartan Pledge states: I will not take my own life by my own hand until I talk to my battle buddy first.

Members of VVA 989 and AVVA are ready to serve .
