VVA Members Dale Roesler and Mark Shemanski are our newest members to have their service photo placed on our website. www.vva528.org/members528.html. This brings our total number of service photos to 133, as of March 3, 2016. I'm sure most members have an old service photo of themselves laying around somewhere. When you find your photo you can either mail it to Tom Brown at 17730 Snow Ave. Dearborn, MI 48124, scan it and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org as an attached jpg (digital image), bring it to our general membership meetings and give it to Tom or drop it off in "Bear's" Office. Be sure to include your name, branch of service and the year the photo was taken. The photo will be scanned and made into a jpg and placed on our website. I will also send each photo to Don Petrere who will then place the copied service photo into our display case at the V.F.W. All photos will be returned to the owner.
