Cameron County student Joshua Beer recently entered an essay in the “Let’s Talk” interview a veteran contest through Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post #6221 in Emporium, taking first prize at the VFW Post #6221 Auxiliary-sponsored local event, and finishing second overall at the District 15 competition. District 15 is comprised of 20 different VFW posts, which all entered their top writers. VFW Post 6221 Project Leader Jennifer Dixon is shown awarding Beer with a certificate and medal, with his parents, Tom and Karen Beer and Jim Haskins, a World War II veteran who served as Beer’s interview subject.
