LAHARPE Its not an exaggeration to say had Willis Ross not been around, there would no longer be a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in LaHarpe.
Ross, a World War II veteran, remained active with the VFW for more than 69 years, up until his death in January at age 97, Post Commander Doug Northcutt noted.
Northcutt spoke at a rededication ceremony Saturday of the VFW post, which has been renamed the Willis J. Ross Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6324.
