As a DAR chapter, we are so appreciative of the historical preservation of the military artifacts displayed in this building. Veterans such as Kenny Preston, Dennis Dickey, Jim Kammer, Dean Delk and so many others should be applauded in preserving the history of our local Veterans throughout the years.
