Members of the VFW and Auxiliary maintained a booth at the Buena Vista County Fair, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, including displays of military uniforms and equipment. The anniversary of the war was observed March 29, recognizing the veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice during one of America’s longest Wars. Nine million American men and women - more than six million of whom are living today - served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces between November 1955 and May 1975. The VFW Post 6172 is based at the Alta Community Center, founded in 1966 and remaining active with multiple educational and service events throughout the year.
