Manchester’s Old Stone Fort Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars, All-American
Post 10904 has taken First Place in the State of Tennessee for Community
Service. This is a significant achievement because the 89 VFW Posts in
Tennessee are not categorized by size. VFW Post 10904, with 187 members, was
up against much larger Posts . yet took the number one spot with more, and
more impactful, community service than any other VFW Post.

Categories judged for this award include: 

1. Community Involvement

2. Cooperation with other Organizations

3. Aid to Others

4. Safety and Health training

5. Americanism

6. Youth and Voice of Democracy

VFW 10904 Post Commander, retired Navy Chief Kimberly King, reported the
good news to her members by email. “We have never received this award
primarily because we are up against huge Posts with hundreds of members,”
she wrote. “This is extremely good news, and I am very happy and proud to
report this to all of you! Thank you for making our Post the best in
Tennessee! What an achievement!”

Manchester’s VFW Post will now be considered by VFW national leadership as
it goes up against top Posts from the other states for best in the nation.
