Students win VFW essay contest
Scott Miller, VFW member and contest judge, Rita Trenz, Chairperson, Voice of Democracy program, Averi Amsterdam, Woodlyn Daniel and Jessica Sammon, essay contest winners, and Raymond Litwin, VFW Post 5199 Commander.

The Veterans of Foreign War posted a question in their annual essay contest: is the constitution still relevant? Three students wrote eloquently on why it still is and were awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the contest. Members of Oceanside’s VFW Post #5199 handed out the awards to Jessica Sammon, 1st Place, Woodlyn Daniel, 2nd Place and Averi Amsterdam, 3rd Place. The vets also spoke with a group of students who had entered the competition about what the VFW does for veterans and what their experiences were as members of the armed forces.
