What do all these veterans have in common?
They are all members of the VFW Post 6785 out Kent, Washington and still serving!
On Sunday VFW Post 6785 (6785) donated $2,500.00 to USO Northwest as a token of our appreciation of all they do to help active servicemembers and their families.
Many of our Post members volunteer at the USO and during Honor Flight. Some notable members from 6785 include Executive Director Cmdr Don Donald M. Leingang, USN (Ret), Seatac Center Manager LTC Matt Sult, USA (Ret), volunteer CMDCM Ken “Pepsi” Przepiora and many others.
About USO Northwest
“Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.”
“Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. The USO is not part of the federal government. As a congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection.”
“The USO Northwest supports America’s military service members and their families throughout the states of Washington and Oregon. With the help of more than 400 volunteers,
USO Northwest serves over 800,000 military and their families annually.
USO Northwest provides support to those who need it the most including military deploying overseas and returning home, military families, wounded warriors and their families and families of the fallen.
