Mountain View VFW Post 3009 recently replaced and disposed of the American flag flying over the Van Buren Senior Citizens Housing complex. The Post also donated and raised the POW/MIA flag at the facility in preparation for POW/MIA Recognition Day on Friday September 16th. The POW/MIA flag now flies over the Carter County Court House, Van Buren City Hall, Van Buren Schools, Van Buren Nutrition Center, Van Buren Post Office, Southern Missouri Bank, Kingree Law Office, Gary Norris Trucking in Fremont and the Log Cabin Restaurant in Ellsinore. Bill Moriarty is the District 18 POW/MIA chairman and is asking that every Post get involved. Bill can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance and ideas pertaining to the VFW POW/MIA recognition and remembrance program.
