"The most important thing I learned is that soldiers watch what their leaders do. You can give them classes and lecture them forever, but it is your personal example they will follow."

Commander's Corner

Commander Billy Luetkahans

Hi everyone,

I'm Billy Luetkahans, and I'm excited to be your new Post Commander. I've been with the VFW for 2 years, and I've always been impressed by the team's dedication and commitment to excellence. I have also lived in the Chaska area for 24 years.  My wife Cathy and I have three children that were all raised here and went to our local schools.  As they are all adults now living their own lives, we have time to give back to the community that helped us raise them. I'm looking forward to working with each and every one of you to continue to build on our success.

I believe that our team is strongest when we work together, so I'm committed to creating an open and collaborative environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing their ideas. I also believe in giving and receiving feedback, so I hope you'll feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns.

I'm excited to get to know each of you better and to learn more about your goals and aspirations. I'm confident that together, we can achieve great things.
