GROSS-YAKSH POST

WELCOME TO GROSS-YAKSH POST

Teamwork ~ Leadership ~ Commitment
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
When North Milwaukee veterans were discussing a name for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post they were organizing, the names of the Gross and Yaksh brothers were frequently mentioned. They had grown up in this area, attended Custer High School, and were well  known and well liked.  Someone presented the idea of combining the two names, so Gross-Yaksh became the Post name.  
 

Announcements

Independence Day

July the Fourth

 

Parades, Picnics, Fireworks – The Fourth of July. As we celebrate across our great country, it could be easy to forget why we’re celebrating in the first place.  Independence Day was first celebrated on July 4, 1776. Two days before, a congress composed of delegates from all thirteen colonies — colonies under the control of the British King — voted for independence. On the fourth, they published the Declaration of Independence, the document that explained their decision to the world at large. It is for that document and what it came to symbolize that we celebrate.

 "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” – John F. Kennedy
