Message from Thomas Ryan in Southern Front #updates
@everyone We're decentralizing the main server chat, this will house every VA member in the South.
This is for interstate cooperation and to foster a more localized community than can be seen with a full national chat.
Also it gets rid of the clutter.
**IF YOU ARE READING THIS, SEND YOUR STATE COMMANDER A DIRECT MESSAGE** with something you are planning to do in order to help the group this coming week or otherwise soon.
The summer is starting and things are heating up. The momentum is here, the pressure is on. Let's make this happen.
Also if you don't you can be expelled for inactivity, SC's need to update the rosters.

@everyone Ladies and Gentlemen, as your fearless leader, I have taken the liberty to step up the action and reaction times of Vanguard America. I want everyone to understand that what I am about to say is a live action drill. On June 10th in Houston, Texas, Antifa will attempt to defile and destroy the statue of Sam Houston and wipe another page of our history off the books. We, as an organization devoted to the preservation of our ancestry, heritage, American pride, and forefathers, cannot allow this travesty to come to fruition. Currently the timeline of a national meet for this organization has been pushed forward to JUNE 10TH in Houston, TX. Further planning and coordination will come down the pipe ASAP. All able bodied and capable members will plan to attend this event. All senior staff and state commanders will be briefed tomorrow. All national members will be briefed shortly after. Gentlemen, this is our day to shine in the glory of the black sun. This will be our day. God speed, Deus Vult and may we be blessed this day.
I will be there. Lets get to work, goys.
@everyone Everyone going to Houston DM me with when you are planning to show up.
@everyone IF YOU ARE GOING TO HOUSTON ON SATURDAY, SEND ME A DIRECT MESSAGE TELLING ME WHEN YOU WILL ARRIVE
@everyone ***19 GUYS CONFIRMED GOING TO HOUSTON THIS SATURDAY, LETS MAKE IT 20 (or more)***
If you are in LA, or OK, it is very possible for you to make it, give it a shot.

@everyone Listen and share.
@everyone Reminder, TODAY at 8 p.m. Central there will be a religious discussion led by FairUse in the GENERAL VOICE CHANNEL in the NATIONAL SERVER
Listen in, or participate if you can. It's about community.

@everyone RT, share, like, all that
@everyone Gentlemen, if you are coming to Houston the hotel rooms I've reserved are FREE OF CHARGE and MUST BE FILLED. If there are any rooms left vacant this will be the first and last time I commit to such charity. Those rooms cost me over 1000 dollars. Use them, or lose them.
@everyone If you are going to Houston, read this.
@everyone Direct message me pictures of the Houston event, any that you have
@everyone DM me with any footage from Houston, even if you think I already have it

@everyone we've gotten a lot of new people. For those of you that don't already know, Vanguard America is a 501(c)(3). What does that mean for you?
Tax Deduction for Volunteer Work and Travel
Volunteers donate their talents and time to religious groups, charities, schools and government agencies that educate and serve needy people. Your service may involve traveling, overnight stays and supplies and clothes tailored to the volunteer work. What you spend to volunteer can reduce your federal income taxes, just as as donations of money and property do.
Traveling from home to volunteer can yield deductions. Qualified costs for getting to the destination include driving, tickets for an airline, train or bus, and taxi fares for the airport trip. For using your car, you can deduct either what you spend on gas or multiply your mileage by 14 cents. If you stay at least one night when volunteering, you may deduct the price of a hotel or motel room, and you can also deduct the cost of meals. You must avoid treating the trip as recreation or personal time, though getting satisfaction from volunteering does not render the trip nondeductible.
Uniforms and Supplies
You may reduce from your taxable income the price of buying or cleaning a uniform to volunteer at places such as a hospital or a national forest. You must wear the uniform while volunteering. The uniform must be primarily for the volunteer work rather than normal daily use; clothes you can normally wear at functions or activities other than volunteering are not deductible uniforms. You may write off the cost of buying equipment or supplies, such as a camera or film in photographing the nonprofit's activities, but not depreciation for the equipment.
Requirement to Itemize
Federal tax write-offs for volunteering apply only if you itemize deductions. These specific deductions are listed on Schedule A of your Form 1040
