Randy Pullin was an active member of the St. Clair Shores community for over 40 years.  Randy, with loving wife Marilyn at his side, was very active in a number of organizations, including the Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Bruce Post 1146, Shorewood Kiwanis, the St. Clair Shores Goodfellows, the Southeast Michigan Veterans Stand Down assisting homeless veterans, served at the John D. Dingell V.A. Hospital in Detroit, the United Way, COPS for Kids, the D.A.R.E. Program, and was also instrumental in coordinating a program for mentoring youth in the 40th District Court.

       Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will.  Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones, and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family.

      Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm.  Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance.  Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my Country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me.  Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold.

      If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.

      Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.

Welcome to the VFW Bruce Post


In April of 1934 four men felt the prospering village of St. Clair Shores should be represented by a Veterans organization.  The men were Bill Randall, Joe Dendoven, Leo Delo, and Charlie Pasters.  There was some indecision as to whether they should be American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Since Joe Dendoven was a member of the Fairview Post and Bill Randall was a member of the Alger Post, the decision was swayed toward a V.F.W.  These four men held meetings in Leo’s garage while they recruited more members.  Later they moved their meetings to St. Clair Shores Inn.  These meetings were primarily of organizational purposes.  On the 21st of August with 57 members they drew up and submitted a charter to form a V.F.W. post based on the inactive half-way post #1146 of East Detroit, which explains why our post number is comparatively low.

The following year Walter F. Bruce, who was a charter member, died.  Being the first member of the newly formed post to pass away, the remaining members decided to name the post after him, hence the name Corporal Walter F. Bruce Post #1146
