New Melle VFW Honor Dennis Kluge

Submitted by Jenn Heismeyer

The Thiemann-Tidd VFW Post 5651 in New Melle presented long-time Auxiliary Member Dennis Kluge with an award for his contributions and service to the Wreaths Across America program and the annual Run for the Wall event.


Dennis has gone above and beyond for our VFW post and Veterans by fundraising and organizing the Wreaths Across America, which places hundreds of wreaths on the graves of our fallen at Jefferson Barrack National Cemetery.

He then jumps right into volunteer efforts and organizing support for the annual Run for the Wall, a motorcycle pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. Run for the Wall honors those killed in action, missing in action, prisoners of war, and shows support for our military all over the world.

We are grateful for his unwavering support and action. Dennis is a true patriot and an inspiration to others.

Congratulations Dennis, well done!
