Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

A small town VFW

 

I heard a sad story today.  Our local VFW is going out of business.  I guess that’s the proper terminology.  They have offered to donate their building to the city because they cannot find enough Veterans of Foreign Wars to fill the officers positions to run the show.  I guess the entire process had been held up by those WWII veterans.(What else is new?)  Now remember, it can’t just be any veteran.  It has to be a veteran that served overseas.  That sort of points to Korean War Veterans and Viet Nam War Veterans.  Maybe there just aren’t as many of them, I don’t know.  Anyway, if it goes, it will be sad, but I’m not quite sure how to help it.  I’m not going to Irag or wherever I can assure you.  They do many things around the area to supporting any parades we have, support a democracy essay contest for the county, but the most astounding thing is the field of flags they put our each memorial day.  I found a few pictures – could be the last one.
