VFW Post 2813 Senior Vice Commander Eddie Avila visited with members of the Boys Scouts Troop 309 at the Veterans Day celebration

Marchers in the New York City Veterans Day Parade were hosted by the John Vincent Daniels Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 2813 after the procession’s conclusion on November 11.

Members of the United States Army Transportation Group based out of Fort Totten, many of whom recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq, and Boy Scouts from Sunnyside’s Troop 309 visited the post, located at 51-27 Queens Boulevard in Woodside, after participating in the parade.

During the event, which included a buffet for guests, Boy Scouts interacted with soldiers, including VFW Post 2813 Senior Vice Commander Eddie Avila, an Iraq War veteran and teacher in the New York City public school system.
