On Friday May 4, 2018, the VFW Department of Kentucky announced that local VFW Post 6937 would be among the few Posts awarded All-State honors, for an unprecedented two years in a row. Throughout the entire state, only ten VFW Posts were selected for All-State. The Department of Kentucky VFW considers many factors in making this award such as increasing membership, caring for veterans in need, as well as their widows and orphans, and doing good works in the community.
Edwin Vincent, VFW Post 6937 outgoing Commander who is in line to soon become State Commander, responded modestly telling Post comrades, “I’d like to thank everyone in the Post for working to make this happen. This was a team effort. We set goals and worked hard to achieve them. Each of you should take pride in this recognition.”
Here in Edmonson County, Post 6937 is most visible to the community in conducting burial honors for veterans, conducting flag training, patriotic speaking and writing contests in the schools, as well as providing honors at significant community events, such as the upcoming Memorial Day ceremony in the Courthouse square on Monday May 28, 2018 beginning at 9:30 am.
