Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873

HELP NEEDED !!!!!

I've been involved with the Naperville VFW and American Legion over the past few years in their annual placing of flags on gravesites of all deceased Veterans for Memorial Day. In the 14 cemeteries covered we place over 2,800 flags. We prepare the gravesites just as is done at all National Cemeteries and at American Cemeteries abroad.  We also have local Boy Scout troops and Sea Cadets help place the flags at the larger cemeteries.

There is so much history in these Veterans that I thought it would be nice to honor their branch of service, conflict served, service record, and any other information of interest.

 

To this end, I would like to enlist the aid of interested folks to collect information about these Veterans (including any Veteran we may have missed):

 

Some examples of information collected:
