Brigantine Memorial Post No. 6964 News


October 21, 2021


Hello from Base Camp V!


Well the weather has been outstanding these last few weeks.  Hopefully it remains until after Halloween so that the Trick or Treaters can enjoy making the rounds and filling their candy bags. Also, we want to remind all drivers to pay special attention that evening.  
We would like to thank all of the friends of Charles "Bussy" Newkirk, who were able to attend his Memorial Service this past Saturday. The weather cooperated, and the Last Salute Military Funeral Honor Guard, who performed an Outstanding service for Bussy and his Family.
