VFW Post 5620 in Carthage has been named an all-American post for the 2018-19 year by the international organization in Kansas City, Mo.

Fewer than 2 percent of the VFW’s 8,600 posts are selected as all-American based on membership growth and participation in community events. Commander James McDaniel and Quartermaster Colin Broadus were cited for their leadership during the past year.

McDaniel and Broadus also were recognized in June at the VFW’s state convention, when the post was named an all-state post.
