'Just sad to rob the VFW Post'

Print Article

On May 14 the VFW Post on Afton Road was held up by a gunman and robbed. It's bad enough the stores are robbed, but to rob a VFW, whose only purpose is to help a community, is just sad.

Although they had insurance, it only covered a portion of what was taken. The VFW helps the community in many ways, the most important being supplying an honor guard for our deceased veterans from all branches.

If it is possible could you send a small donation to the club to help them recoup their losses? Even if it's just a dollar it would help. The address is: VFW Post 2306, Attn: Quartermaster John Hicks, 2711 Afton Road, Beloit, WI 53511.
