In the words of first Post Commander Harold Shepard:
At the time the Post was organized we were all pretty young, none had too much experience in such affairs, not much money to do with, and most had just gotten out of the service and had not gotten their feet really planted back in civilian life. While as we look back we can see many things we could of done and some things we should not of done, I think we are all very happy that we were a part of the beginning of what has turned out to be quite an outfit.
