Do You Recognize this Young Airman? 

Les Abel

From time to time we are able to get our hands on photos of Post comrades from their days of active service, giving us a glimpse of the young service members we once were. 

This photograph of Les Abel is dated, Les tells us, from 1951, when he was a young Airman stationed in Germany for a then even younger USAF. 

Les has been a very active member of VFW Post 8870 for many years and in recent years has been the perennial Commander of American Legion Post 66. 

Hey, we’d recognize Les anywhere!
