On Sunday, military veterans gathered at the Black Eagle Community Center to share a meal and celebration of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 4669’s more than 60 years of activity.
The Black Eagle Community Center is the home of VFW post 4669.
Since November is the anniversary of the chapter's founding more than 60 years ago, this gathering is a tribute to both Veterans Day and the founding a major veteran organization in the community.
Post Commander Frank Tuss shared how this event is a milestone for veterans and the local VFW chapter.
“That's how long our VFW post's been in existence, since 1944, November 12th. So this is kind of a celebration that we're having here as our post being that old and to give other veterans and friends a place to come and eat for a goodwill offering,” Tuss said.
The VFW’s local chapter puts on festivities like this one throughout the year.
