November 8th marked the 14th annual Charter Night Dinner for AMVETS Post 2180 in Murphy, Wisconsin. Their members, along with VFW, American Legion and Veterans Assistance Foundation in Tomah gathered at Veteran Memorial Hall in Necedah. They had a lot to celebrate.

Murphy AMVETS Post 2180 has been awarded Post of the Year from the AMVETS Department of Wisconsin for seven of the last eight years. Post 2180 members have been active in the community, making a total of 1,641 visits to schools and memorial services this year, totaling over 5,500 hours of service. Also, Post member Kenneth Hornburg received the Edward L. Janczak award for his work with Veterans in their community.

Hornburg, who also serves on the American Legion and VFW, said “Most all of it has to do with the support of the American veteran.” He goes on to say “the person that gives some time to the service of his country needs to be thanked. Because he has given his life over and above what everybody else does.”
