Post Named All-American

VFW Headquarters has notified the Commander that VFW Post 12093 'John Lukac' had completed all the requirements and was recognized as an All American Post. Congratulations to the 2016-17 Commander, Officers and you the Comrades of the Post. Special recognition should go to Randy Shields for his great work getting the the most recent members entered into the Online Membership System (OMS) in an expedited manner and the efforts of several key members who beat the bushes in the last couple of months to make this happen. When available, an All American hat may be ordered by any member of the Post. We will provide ordering information here when we have it.
