UPPER DARBY, PA – The only Greek-American Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in the United States continues its 75th year with a celebration and new agenda.

Comrades of the Eleftheria VFW Post 6633 celebrated Manny Leventelis, George Roebas, and Bill Philips' service to their country and church, and their leadership of the VFW post. Commander Nick Pelis welcomed a new board of trustees and presented initiatives to keep the post going strong. Included are monthly luncheons, holiday parties, group bus trips, annual portraits and other events to boost attendance and encourage fellowship.

Guest speakers Anna Hadgis and George Tsetsekos answered questions about the Eleftheria VFW 6633 perpetual Scholarship Fund, which will be maintained and distributed to descendants of veterans through the Hellenic University Club of Philadelphia. Veterans of all ages are invited to attend monthly meetings which are held on the second Tuesday of every month at St. Demetrios Church in Upper Darby.

A free hot lunch is provided for everyone who attends the meeting and transportation can be arranged for those who need it. Family and friends of veterans are welcome to participate in the meeting and luncheon. The Eleftheria VFW 6633 has been committed to excellence for 75 years and strives to continue the tradition of honoring veterans for many more.
