All-American Post 7916 Supports Police Officers in Puerto Rico
Congressman Wittman supported Hawkins Reeve VFW Post 7916 and the Family Friend Togetherness organization to gather donations for Police Officers in Barranquitas and Najarito, Puerto Rico where the devastation of Hurricanes Maria and Irma is still being repaired. Many of the officers have lost their homes and all of their belongings while continuing to serve their community. Post 7916 was proud to support this event and to host Congressman Wittman, Supervisor Ruth Anderson, Mayor Liz Quist, and candidates Jeff Dove (candidate for 11th Virginia Congressional District) and Dr. Minerva Dias (candidate for U.S. Senate from Virginia).
