Tennessee Has Ace VFW District Commander in Manchester

Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is organized into state Departments, and then into regional Districts that support the individual Posts in that region. Over the 97-year history of the VFW Department of Tennessee, no District with 10 Posts has ever earned the distinction of every Post earning the coveted VFW All-American Post designation in the same year… until now.

Manchester’s Old Stone Fort Memorial VFW Post 10904 has been awarded the VFW National All-American Post designation for its record-shattering fifth consecutive year. While retired Navy Chief Kimberly King is Commander of Manchester’s VFW Post, she’s also Commander of Tennessee’s District 5, which supports ten VFW Posts in our area. For the first time, all ten Posts have earned the All-American Post designation, making Commander Kimberly King Tennessee’s “Ace” District Commander. For the year ending June 30th, 17 of Tennessee’s 87 VFW Posts were awarded All-American, with 10 of them being here in Middle Tennessee’s District 5. Thunder Radio spoke to our “Ace” and here is what she had to say:
