Buckingham VFW Post 8446 recognized

The Buckingham County Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 8446 received a plaque of recognition from the Buckingham County Board of Supervisors after the post was awarded the coveted title of All-American Post.

Buckingham Post Commander Victor Moss accepted the plaque from Board Chairman Harry W. Bryant at the board meeting Monday, Jan. 13. However, he attributed the post’s success to its many members, several of whom were present at the board meeting.

“It’s a team effort. It’s not all about me,” commented Moss after applause from the Monday night audience. “So, thank you to you guys and thank you to the board.”

VFW 4th District Commander Gus Villalobos and State Senior Vice Commander Eric Mallett presented Moss with the red, white and blue All-American Commander’s Cap during a 4th District meeting in Farmville last November. This is the first time in history that the post has received such national recognition.

“On behalf of Buckingham VFW Post 8446, I would like to thank the Buckingham County Board of Supervisors for the lovely plaque they awarded us for winning the coveted title of All-American Post for 2018-19,” Moss later said in a statement to The Herald. “Also, I would like to thank our members for their service and continued support of our post.”

Moss added that any individuals having served in a foreign war who are interested in joining the post can contact him personally by calling (434) 547-2771.
