Veterans in West End Richmond working to charter new VFW Post

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — According to Jean-Michel Christopher, a veteran and resident of Henrico County, the West End of Richmond has no active organization supporting veterans, their families and the community.

As a result, a few veterans have recently gotten together and have received authorization to start the process of chartering a new Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post.

In order to charter a new post, the group first needs a minimum number of new members.

Today, Christopher came by 8News to discuss the project.
