On Saturday, August 18, at 4:00 PM, VFW Post 8870 and American Legion Post 66 will gather to celebrate the 100th birthdays of two of our members; Buck Weaver, World War II fighter pilot and Ed Shepherd, Navy Veteran, also of World War II. Please join us for a spaghetti dinner, beverages and celebration of our senior comrades. All are invited, bring family and friends.
Post 8870 members Edgar Shepherd and Benton Webb were honored at the July Post meeting with engraved plaques recognizing their service in the United States Navy during World War II.
Both men served from 1942 to 1945. We are proud to have these WWII veterans as our Post Comrades.
These comrades are included in the group of our remaining WWII vets so honored earlier.
