Fr. John Washington Post, #1944 of the Catholic War Veterans of America
The purpose and objective of the Catholic War Veterans is to make the entire nation acutely aware of the struggle and needs of our Veterans, their Widows and their Children. Last year we served nearly three thousand doughnuts and coffee to the Veterans residing in the Emory L. Bennett Veterans Nursing home as well as the Veterans Out Patient Clinic. Every year we honor and pay tribute to our active duty service personnel on May 30th.
The Catholic War Veterans meet every first Saturday of the month at 10:15 AM in the Gold Room in the Education Building here at Prince of Peace. All men and women who have served at any time in the Armed Forces are invited to attend.
We are currently accepting new members. If you are an Honorably Discharged Military Veteran, that has served anywhere at anytime, we welcome you to seek membership in our organization. Please contact Russ Cormican for information. DaytonaCommander@cfl.rr.com
