Celebrating President's Day

VFW Auxiliary National President Sandi Kriebel came to Texas late last month for a visit.  She was greeted by Department President Eppie Lackey, National Council Area H, Debbie Daniel and Department Historian Bernie Adams.  President Kriebel was taken to the Crowne Plaza where the state of Texas would be meeting for their Mid-Winter Conference, but not before taking a tour of the Capital and Bob Bullock Museum.  Kriebel and Lackey were part of helping the VFW recognition of the top 10 State Winners from the FBW Voice of Democracy Program, the State Winner from the Patriots Pen Program, and Teacher of the Year. Shown are Lackey and Kriebel. Submitted by VFW Post 3413
