History on display as West Seattle VFW celebrates centennial

2:56 PM: As previewed here, the West Seattle VFW invites you to visit as its 100th-anniversary open house continues until 4 pm. Historic items and photos are on display; they’re also hosting the state commander, U.S. Air Force veteran Linda Fairbank. And veterans are invited to join, first year free, per West Seattle commander Steve Strand (a U.S. Army veteran). More photos to add later; the hall’s at 3601 SW Alaska in The Triangle.

7:42 PM: Added – above, state commander Fairbank, local commander Strand, and Kyle Geraghty. Below, one of the items on display, and a wider view inside the hall:

The state commander presented the post with a Century Award certificate from the national commander; the exact 100th anniversary is tomorrow.
