On Veterans Day, what better to focus on than a local veterans’ group.
Bensalem Patch would like to present this photo gallery of the VFW Post 9198 Bauer-Hartman-Marszalek Post, located at 1158 Bristol Pike in Andalusia.
The local post is a chapter of the national Veterans of Foreign Wars organization whose mission is to “foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military, and our communities. To advocate on behalf of all veterans.”
The Bauer-Hartman-Marszalek Post offers a social club for local veterans and participates in various civic and patriotic events including the Bensalem Memorial Day Parade along Bristol Pike.
The following is a Veterans Day message from the VFW national organization:
Veterans Day grants us the opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude to the generations of men and women who’ve made great sacrifices to protect the American way of life through military service.
Over the years, it has been those who believe in something bigger than themselves, those who proudly wear the uniform of the U.S. military, who’ve so tenaciously defended our freedom and liberated people all over the world from the dark grip of tyranny and fear.
On this sacred holiday, we celebrate the brave and accomplished Americans who’ve selflessly and justly earned the title of United States military veteran. We thank them for defending us in our time of need, for their bravery in the face of evil and for all of the sacrifices they’ve made in the name of the United States of America.
The VFW salutes all Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coastguardsmen. Happy Veterans Day, and thank you for your service.
