VFW post in need of donations to avoid closure after damages

Maurice T. Suttles VFW Post 3413 is a staple in the community. Beyond the obvious dedication to veterans, the VFW also helps residents during emergencies, is present at many local events and provides a regular meeting place for area groups, whether they are veteran organizations or not. The post, which was chartered in 1935, is also in need of more than $100,000 financial support, lest the doors be closed forever, following damages from the recent storm. Like true service members, Post 3413 Commander Stephanie Brown and Post 3413 Quartermaster Aaron Brown will not be going down without a fight.
