All-American Hawkins-Reeve Post 7916 honors our dead by helping the living by supporting those who have sacrificed so much for this country: the U.S. Military veterans, men and women serving in our Armed Forces and their families, through community service, a commitment to national security and a strong national defense.
Americans coming together for Memorial Day, can be the beginning of America becoming what Americans want and need it to be.
Between the crosses, row on row, we are the dead that short days ago lived and now lie in Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe. To you from failing hands we throw the torch to hold high. IF YE BREAK FAITH WITH US WE SHALL NOT SLEEP, though poppies grow in Flanders Fields. John McCrae 1917
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTS, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
WELCOME and thank you for your military service in overseas conflict that qualifies you AND your family for the select ranks of All-American Hawkins-Reeve Post 7916's WARRIORS STILL SERVING.

"But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserves us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace too proud to pray to the God that made us".Abraham Lincoln Proclamation - A National Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, March 30, 1863All American Post 7916 and the Town of Occoquan proudly announce the second annual Military Tribute Banner Program is SOLD OUT.
