The Coushatta VFW Post and Auxiliary joined the local Burger King restaurant in observing Armed Forces Day last Saturday. Members of Post 7287 and Auxiliary 7287 went to breakfast to say “Thank You.”
Burger King restaurants support the Veterans of Foreign Wars Unmet Needs program by contributing over $5,000,000 nationwide. Unmet Needs has provided more than $10,000,000 in assistance to nearly 9,000 veterans and military families who came face-to-face with unexpected financial difficulties. The program began in 2004.
On Saturday the VFW went to say thanks to the local Burger King restaurant. They met Assistant Manager Elise Ivy and had a delicious breakfast. The delegation was headed by Post Commander Barry McCoy and Auxiliary President Dawn Brewer.
The next meeting of the Coushatta VFW and Auxiliary will be Thursday, June 28th at 7:00 pm. The meetings are held at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church on the Ashland Road. For more information, call 932-6557.
