How are you #StillServing?
Post 3282 recently helped salute the 100th birthday of a local WWII USMC Veteran of Peleliu and other Pacific Theater battles. We were contacted by the activities Director at Seagrass Village, Port Orange, to help honor this veteran. Through our contacts with at least a dozen other local veterans groups, we hastily put out the word to organize a “drive-by” under COVID-19 restrictions. At least 40 cars and motorcycles showed up on 6 Aug 2020 to parade past Seagrass Village with the Vet, his family, staff and other residents in attendance for the salute.
Why do you do it?
We (VFW) exist to honor and serve veterans.
