Welcome to Joyce M. Helson Post 5162

VFW Post 5162 receive it's Charter in 1987 with 35 members, although we have no Post Home, the Post has always been very active in the Community. One of the most active members of the Post was Joyce M. Helson who served as the Post Chaplain for many years. In 2009 Joyce was killed in an accident while visiting South Dakota. The 2010-2011 Commander put forth a resolution to change the name to Joyce M. Helson Post 5162. The Post received it's new Charter in 2011.
