New Melle VFW Earns High Honors


Congratulations Thiemann-Tidd Post 5651. For the first time in the New Melle VFW Post's history, the post has earned All-American status! Each year, a select group of VFW Posts throughout the nation are recognized for outstanding participation in VFW programs and membership. Achieving this status takes a tremendous amount of effort and organization.

Making All-American was not only possible through the efforts of our Veteran members, but also assisted by our awesome Auxiliary members. It is an honor and a privilege to be a member of an organization that has overwhelming support from our community. Many Posts located in smaller communities are struggling to survive; however, this All-American status is proof that Posts in smaller communities can thrive and achieve great goals. The whole community can be proud of this special recognition.
