VFW Post 3348 uses various services including the Lake City VA Clinic, the VA Hospital on Beacon Hill in Seattle, our Service Officer (Tim Miller) is very engaged in helping veterans.
The Joint Service Committee (JSC) started in VFW Post 3348 as what was initially called the "Service Team". When the Service Team membership continued to grow, the Post Commander renamed them the Service Committee. That way it better fit under the VFW guidelines. However, that structure did not work once they moved to the American Legion Hall in MLT.
VFW Post 3348 could not retain them within the Post as a "Committee", since under the VFW guidelines for Committees there are certain financial regulations which they could not honor. So, the name was changed to the Joint Service Committee (JSC). While the JSC is not now under the control of the VFW Post 3348 Commander, some VFW Post 3348 members are still involved, and our Post supports the JSC financially from time to time.
To contact the Joint Service Committee, who meet at the American Legion Hall in MLT, just show up there on any Tuesday; or if you prefer an appointment, call (206) 963-2864. The address of the American Legion hall is 22909 56th Ave W, Mountlake Terrace.
