In late June news reporter Eric Mungenast contacted our Commander seeking assistance with a news article they were putting out, specifically with honoring veterans in the East Valley. Within a 48 hour window Commander Dan Wilson gathered information (bio data) from Post 1760’s website, and active duty pictures from those members the news reporter were seeking and was able to submit most of them by the deadline (one member’s information missed).
I Ismael M. Portillo Jr., from the VFW Post 1760 would like to post our outcome on our 239th Army Celebration Party that was held on Saturday, June 14th.
I would like to say that our celebration was a blast and had a great turn out. We had a great crowd from our post as well as other VFW Post members and American Legion.
First of all with all the support of all the men and women in the Auxiliary and post members who donated and helped make this even happen.
