Veterans Breakfast AAR

The After Action Report (AAR) for the Veterans Breakfast had 34 attendees. 27 were veterans. Our Guest speaker was Moyo Mitchell from the Franklin County Veterans Service Commission.  He spoke about benefits and areas they aid veterans.  He took questions, which lasted for about 45 minutes.  Everyone enjoyed the coffee, donuts and touring the museum.

C.P. Sprague, the VFW Commander, offered information on joining the VFW and the AMVETS. Both groups meet at the museum.  For more information call 614-877-1941.

We had two of the “Greatest Generation” veterans come to the veterans breakfast. Pictured below, on the left’ is 94 year old Paul Shoaf a WWII 107th Mechanized Cavalry. Paul was a mechanic in a Stewart Tank. Next to him is 98 year Howard Bentley. Howard was with the 96th Infantry Division. He fought in Leyte and in Okinawa. Howard was awarded four Bronze Stars and a “V” for Valor. Both men are true heroes to me.
