Are you, or is someone you know and love, a veteran?
The Cranford VFW Post #335, located at 479 South Avenue, is hosting their Annual Veterans Breakfast on Sunday, November 9th, at 9:00 AM. The breakfast is free of charge, and open to all Veterans, regardless of the era of their service. Veterans can enjoy some great speakers, including Lt. Col. Timothy McLaughlin, the current commander of the Mountainside VFW Post 10136, a 24-year veteran of the Army National Guard, and a Bronze Star decorated Veteran from Iraq. Lt. Colonel McLaughlin has held many command positions in his career, and is currently serving as Chief of the Surface Maintenance Division of the New Jersey Joint Forces Head Quarters.
Each year, the nearly two million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries contribute more than 8.6 million hours of volunteerism to their surrounding communities, and provide millions of dollars in college scholarships and savings bonds to students, in addition to providing a superb support network for veterans of foreign wars.
This event is a great way for veterans to enjoy some great speakers, some good food, and a warm welcome. It’s a nice little “thank you” for your service, and a great opportunity to spend time with fellow service men and women.
