Morgan Of The New Era Sweet Home Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 3437, marked its 75th anniversary on Jan. 9. Richard L. DeNoyer, national commander of the VFW, last week announced the presentation of a Diamond Jubilee Award citation to VFW Post 3437 in recognition of the event. "This is a very significant milestone for a VFW Post," DeNoyer said: "This Diamond Jubilee Award recognizes dedication, determination, hard work and a lot of patriotism. And it recognizes 75 years of serving the needs of local veterans and their families and 75 years of service to the local community - and 75 years of contributing to the strength, power and influence of our national organization. "In presenting this award, I send my sincere thanks and appreciation to the members of VFW Post 3437." The Sweet Home VFW formed on Dec. 17, 1943, 68 years ago, said Post Commander Jim Allyn, but it's also the 75th anniversary. That's because the General Ulysses Grant McAlexander VFW Post of Lebanon merged with Sweet Home on March 2, 2010, Allyn said. The Lebanon club formed on Jan. 9, 1937, 75 years ago. "They folded in the first part of 2010, and they wanted to consolidate with Sweet Home," Allyn said. The national organization approved the merger, and the Lebanon club became part of Sweet Home. "That automatically increased our age, from '43 to '37," Allyn said. The Lebanon club, which made its home at the American Legion Hall, had few members, and its auxiliary I00IRTI1S Jan. 6: Kyiar Christopher Combs, born to Ashley and Christopher Combs at 5:50 p.m. He weighed 9 pounds 8.1 ounces and was 22 inches long with light brown hair and blue eyes.

Any big gathering, such as the all-vets dinner, is divided among the organizations, who meet and work out details among themselves, he said.
