A few of our members visited the traveling WWII, Korean & Michigan Vietnam War Memorials on display this week at the Livingston County Spencer J. Hardy Airport in Howell, MI. The display was constructed by the non-profit organization "Freedom's Never Free." Viewings began Thursday, July 11th. This display is free and open to the public 24 hours a day through Sunday, July 14th.

Waterfowlers for Warriors 22 Mile Veteran's Suicide Awareness Walk on June 8th was a huge success with many walkers turning out to participate. The walk began at Edmore VFW Post 2292 at 5:30 a.m. and ended at our Post with a meal for the walkers. We were honored to once again welcome the Spartan Sword and pleased to assist Waterfowlers for Warriors in their effort to raise awareness for this worthy cause. We hope you will consider joining in next year!
