VFW Post 6119 Commander Rudy Pena announced this year’s two winners. They are Kailey Harless and Luis Riojas. Commander Pena presented each winner with a Certificate of Recognition and a check for $50.
The Patriot’s Pen Contest is open to all sixth, seventh and eighth graders in public or private school and to students that are home schooled. The VFW’s National Commander in Chief chooses the topic each year and this year’s topic was “Why Veterans should be Honored”.
The students that participated have a good knowledge concerning Veterans and that is why they should be honored.
