VJ-DAY SEPT 2 Commemoration Program

Today marks the end of a war that historians thought would never happen. The Second World War involved more nations than any war in history to that point. When it was finally declared over on September 2nd, 1945 the world celebrated like never before. Many young men went to war and never came home. On this day the 75th anniversary of the it's end please do not forget our greatest generation for their ranks are shrinking year after year. Please do not let them and stories disappear to history, celebrate them and remember what they went through. For those who ignore history are destined to repeat it.

It saddens KMR to say: the new executive order with bars, food, etc leaves us no choice but to postpone the Toast the Fallen once again. New date to follow. We appreciate your patience and support as we continue to try new ideas to fundraise and cannot wait to have the Toast the Fallen and make it a huge success.

Victory in Europe Day - Wikipedia

Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, also known as VE Day. This day has a more formal celebration there than in the US. Our country took part in the battle on both sides of the globe, but has no official holiday to commemorate that day. The sites below try to give a picture of what the day means and how it is honored in Europe where the hostilities actually occurred. We were extremely lucky that almost all hostilities occurred outside the US with the exception of Pearl Harbor

Congrats to member Joseph Suto Jr.

Congratulations to Joseph Suto, Jr. who was recognized as the 60th Senate District Veteran of the Month for February 2020 in a ceremony this afternoon at the Hamburg VFW Post 1419. Joe joined the U.S. Army Reserves while only a junior in high school, showing an incredible and unwavering commitment to serving our country. His 22 years of active service, which included time in Boznia-Herzegovina, and his dedicated service to Post 1419 make him a very deserving recipient! Thanks to Joe's wife Stacy, son Joseph III, daughter Isabella, father Joseph Sr. and his fellow veterans for celebrating with him today!

End of an era: Last Pearl Harbor veteran to be interred at USS Arizona Memorial

Today, is date that has lived in infamy. On this date in 1941, the US was attacked and entered World War II. Many were lost on this day and have lied in rest for 78 years. There are those who survived the attack and the war. Unfortunately they're leaving us now through just the passage of time. Take time remember those who were lost that day and those whom are leaving us every day. For we shall not see the like of them again.
