  • Congratulations to VFW Post 4517 in Piggott Ark.

    I grew up just one block from the VFW Post on South Garfield Ave. My grandfather Thomas Albert Wilkins was at WW1 Veteran and was a active member of that

    post and attended the meetings in the very building that is still being used.

    My Husband, Samuel McElya, is a decorated Vietnam Veteran and is currently and has been for the past 3 years, commander of our local VFW Post 1831 in DeSoto, Mo.

    I have been their volunteer secretary for the past

    4 years and am a member of our Ladies Auxiliary.

    Again, Congratulations to VFW Post 4517.
