WATCH: History Flight returns a WWII Colorado vet home – Denverite

On Oct. 8, 2016, the nonprofit History Flight gathered the families of five WWII soldiers killed on the beaches of Tarawa, a crucial waypoint for Allied forces to enter the Pacific theatre. That morning they buried one of these soldiers, PFC Ronald Vosmer, near his parents and grandparents in Fairmount Cemetery. Vosmer was the the most recently buried of 23 identified bodies discovered in a mass grave at Tarawa. His homecoming means a closure for his family and the end of a 73 year-long mystery. Watch the video.

Warning: this video contains footage of human remains.


Post 1980


National Commander Charlie Schmidt pays a visit to Woodland Park Post 1980. Post Commander Dan Williams is pointing out some of the features of the recently remodeled post home. Home Depot provided much of the material and some of the labor to completely remodel their hall. The hall was originally a Grange Hall and now is shared by the Legion and VFW for their meetings and community activities. Congratulations Post 1980.

Crawford House

Commander Charlie and Crawford House Director Vicki spend some time discussing the mission of this important asset  for the homeless veterans of Colorado springs.


Friends, as you know I rarely post anything, but it is time for the silent majority to speak up! This is not a political thing. It is not Democrat nor Republican nor Tea Party nor Libertarian. It is not Liberal nor Conservative. It is Patriotism! And we are being slapped in the face by a few members of the NFL whose owners for whatever reason, condone, and in doing so, support un-American actions.
