Media VFW Post 3460


This is really sobering. First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city where you went to high school and look at the names. Click on the name and it will give details of the person's death, a picture or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time
and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what
those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.

PHILLIES:  We have to remember that we have 2 teams that have been successful here in our area.  The Phillies have officially made it as the top WILD CARD team for the National League.  This means they hold home field advantage.  The first game will be played on Tuesday October 3rd.  Time has yet to be posted, as well as their opponent.
CONDOLENCES:  We are sad to report that Ed Creighton (HA Member) lost his mother Barbara.  We send ours prayers out to Ed and his family.  RIP
RECENT BREAKFAST:  Thanks to all who assisted in making the VFW breakfast a success.  The eggs were frying, while the coffee was brewing.  We had 100 turn out to enjoy the food and atmosphere.  See you again on
October 29th, for the next breakfast.
NEXT IRISH SOCIAL:  Sunday October 1st we will again be hosting another Irish Social. Entertainment begins at 5:15 pm in the Barlow Hall.  Cover at the door is $13, which includes a buffet dinner.
