VFW Convention comes to Huntington

Posted: Updated:

VFW members from around the state met in Huntington this weekend.

More than 150 members of Veterans of Foreign Wars from around the state met at Pullman Plaza Hotel for the 92nd annual convention.

Folks get to meet and share ideas about their clubs and organizations, as well as talk about important issues.

Retired U.S. Army Major General Allan Tackett was on hand to talk to groups about the ways folks can benefit from the clubs.

Some say it was a way of moving things forward.

"Absolutely a more positive step we're just trying to make it more known that the VFW isn't what everybody thinks it is.  It's here for the veterans and their families we just need the veterans of today to come and help us out," Dave Moske of Huntington said.

Activities continue tomorrow with a haircut auction at noon with proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors project.
