Local VFW roster covers four generations
VFW Post #2243, which began in October 1931, is secure and will not be closing any time soon.
This is the news shared following a visit from State VFW officials Sept. 7-10. The officials came to the area to increase membership and activity at the local post.
According to lifetime VFW member, and longtime leader, Joe Hernandez, the leadership roles have been handed over to capable, young veterans.
“I am thankful and appreciate those people that wanted to join the post,” Hernandez said. “We have a new, young generation that are energetic and ambitious and they are committed.”
