Anderson Named Chairman Potomac Region Veterans Council

RICH ANDERSON , Colonel, USAF, Ret., was elected as Chairman of the Potomac Region Veterans Council (PRVC).  Anderson is the former Delegate to Virginia’s 51st District and is a Life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, and the Disabled American Veterans.  Rich Anderson replaces outgoing PRVC Chairman CHUCK WILSON , Colonel USAF, Ret., who is the past VFW District 10 Commander & Post 7916 Commander.   

The Potomac Region Veterans Council (PRVC) was formed in June 1972 to coordinate and promote the common good of veterans of the Northern Virginia area and to honor our fallen comrades on Veterans’ Day and Memorial Day. The Council today represents over 15,000 veterans in 29 different veterans’ organizations. 

The Council proudly sponsors the “Avenue of Honor” at Quantico National Cemetery. The Avenue of Honor is erected every Memorial Day and Veterans Day and is made up entirely of flags donated by families of deceased veterans. The original design for the “Avenue of Honor” included only 80 flag poles. Today over 200 flags are flown. The project continues to expand from the main gate to every corner of the cemetery. 

The Council is in the planning stages for the November 11 Veterans Day Ceremony at Quantico National Cemetery with the ceremony beginning with the USMC Band providing a musical prelude at 10:30. The public is invited.
