Big Thanks to Burger King for their Support

Burger King is a national sponsor of the VFW's Unmet Needs program. Since 2007, Burger King franchisees and their customers have contributed over $4.3 million to the VFW Unmet Needs program. Their generosity has been put to work, directly assisting more than 4,100 veterans and military families who came face-to-face with unexpected financial difficulties.

Newnan HS History's Veteran's Relief 5k - Wow!

At last count we had at least 27 VFW and Auxiliary members out here running, walking, working, supporting...
And that doesn't count the Legion, SAL, Legion Aux and Marine Corps League members. Great turn out!
