This is the start of the new year 2022 – 2023. Our Post VFW Post 1337 has been on a high. All State and All American four years in a row. Great job to all of you. Without the help from all of you this could not have been successful. We at VFW Post 1337 have a great and talented crew. I say let’s make it five in a row.
Our VFW Post 1337 delivered a complete X-Sheet. Teacher of the year Stephanie Kezios. First responder Jason Kalinowski for our entry for Policeman. Our 4TH District had an entry for the VOD award Natalie Siseck.
Last year’s highlights are amazing to say the least. I believe that Memorial Day parade and ceremony was the icing on top. To have a great speaker the Medal of Honor Recipient Allan Lynch as our keynote speaker was above reapproach. With the help from everyone we achieved the best Memorial Day ever in Mount Prospect. We can not leave behind the talents of the film and sound crew, Howard and Steve. Public works gave an extra step and made everything run smooth. The Police and Fire Departments as well as Jim Millers CERT team made it look easy. Humana, Lions and Moose Clubs with their generous donations. Helped to make all this happen.
Thanks to all of you that contributed to our Memorial Day Holiday. The Veterans at VFW Post 1337 say we could not have done this without your help. Thank you from all of us.
