Santa visited VFW Post 1603 on Minot Avenue, Auburn, and brought five Marines in their dress blues to assist him in presenting gifts. While Santa and the Marines were at the post, Commander Bill Bradbury, VFW national recruiter, signed up four of the five as life members. The men are Iraq War veterans. From left are Bradbury, Sgt. Joseph Catino of Skowhegan, SSgt. Chris Singley of Sparta, Ga., Santa, Sgt. Frank Pellerin of Bangor, SSgt. Ricky Devita of Miami, Cpl. Lucas Reardon of Calais and Post Senior Vice Commander Jack Jackson. Anyone who would like to become a Veterans of Foreign Wars member may contact Arthur J. Roy at 784-6883 or [email protected]
