Please Help repair Post & replace Funeral rifles

Hi, my name is Cris Vieyra Jr., Commander of VFW Post 8397 located at 2541 W. Southcross Blvd. San Antonio, TX 78211. Burglars broke into the building through metal doors and stole a 5 foot safe containing eight (8) Springfield Armory M1 Garand Semi Rifle .30-06 and two (2) Replica Rifles.

The thieves cut through the metal doors and removed a 5 foot safe which had been bolted to the concrete flood.

The M1 Rifles are used at Funerals of Veterans laid to rest, the Honor Guard fires 3 follies, sounds taps and fold the American flag for presentation at funerals. The two replica rifles are used by the color guard when presenting the US flag at ceremonies.

We the members of VFW Post 8397 are asking for help in repairing or replacing the damage to the building. We are also hoping to replace the rifles we use at funerals and the rifles we use at ceremonies.

Thank you for any help you can give.

Cris Vieyra Jr.
