Hello from your New Commander


Hello from your New Commander

June 9, 2024 Uncategorized 0


I am Greg Algorri, the newly elected Commander of VFW Post 9972. I served 20 years in the Army, earning my eligibility for the VFW through tours in Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan. On the home front, I am a proud father to four children: Hunter (19), Ava (16), Shawn (12), and Jaxyn (2). My girlfriend, Shanda, who is also a dedicated member of the Auxiliary and the Conductor for the 2024-2025 year, stands by my side in this journey.

Since joining Post 9972 in 2018, I have been deeply involved in various capacities. I started by helping with meals, washing dishes, and cleaning up. Before long, I became known as the “Burger Guy.” Through these experiences, I developed a profound appreciation for the camaraderie and dedication that define our organization. Today, I am deeply honored to serve as YOUR Commander.

Our primary goal this year is to deepen our connection with the community. I envision a Sierra Vista where every event related to veterans or the military naturally involves the VFW. Our new tagline, “Honoring Service, Uniting Community,” perfectly captures our mission. By uniting our community, we will attract new members and strengthen our organization. Let’s make it clear: VFW Post 9972 is here to support and engage with our community.

I want to thank the Auxiliary for everything they do. The Auxiliary plays a crucial role in our mission. Their unwavering support and active participation in our events and initiatives significantly contribute to our success. From organizing fundraisers to providing valuable assistance at our events, the Auxiliary’s efforts amplify our impact and help us achieve our goals. Together, we can make a greater difference in the lives of our veterans and in our community.

I am committed to ensuring that WE do everything possible to support OUR veterans and our community. My love for this organization runs deep, and I am excited to serve you in the coming year. We will undoubtedly face new challenges, but I believe these goals will set us on the right path, building on the progress made over the past two years.
