WELCOME TO KEN CHAPMAN POST 12074

Veterans Still Serving

As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service while currently on Active Duty or any Veteran who has deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, The Gulf War, Vietnam, Korea, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns or one of the many Operations where hazardous duty pay, or a campaign medal was awarded. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
