BX veterans' post celebrates 100th anniversary
One of the oldest veteran posts in the city is coming up on its 100th anniversary.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 95 will celebrate its centennial birthday on March 25.
Sgt. Thomas Mullen is responsible for bringing the club house into the 21st century. He says it started when he came back from being deployed in 2001. He was looking for sanctuary, so he solicited some of his friends and decided to clean the place up.
"It's nice to just be with guys that have that common background. We're not a regular bar, we don't open up and stay open till four in the morning. We kind of set up a club house for military members," says Mullen.
Eddie Christ has been coming to the club house with his dad since he was a child. He says he remains on the club house board as a reminder of the decades of brotherhood that has made the post such a staple.
"Everyone would at least know what the other people have gone through, not the exact experience, but the same general experience," says Christ.
