Lisicki discussed the floor plans for the proposed new VFW facility with local post members.
Members of the VFW purchased land in the area of 305 S. Depot St., near the Moose Home Lodge 780, to build the new facility in the near future, which is expected to cost approximately $325,000-$350,000.
"I know this must be a very exciting project for this VFW," Lisicki said about the project that will allow the local group to better serve the 254 local veterans that are part of the organization and the new Iraq war vets returning from active service.
Lisicki was elected as the national commander-in-chief at the VFW's 108th national convention in August 2007. He served in the United States Army from 1966-69 in the Vietnam with the 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division. He was awarded the Bronze Star, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal and the Vietnam Campaign Medal.
Founded in 1899, there are 2.4 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries located in approximately 8,500 VFW Posts worldwide.
