Tonganoxie VFW Post 9271 got its start in 1985 in a Mutual Savings basement meeting room. There were 54 charter members there that night. It was the start of a second stint for the VFW in the community, as the late John Cass Lenahan served as commander of the previously established post several years earlier.
Rev. Mike Bronson mentioned the importance of heroes at Sunday’s Memorial Day Weekend ceremony at VFW Park in Tonganoxie.
