Two Botetourt area veterans helped homeless veterans find some Christmas cheer. Past Quartermaster Ken Proffitt and Past Post Commander Don Mountcastle of VFW Post 5895 in Buchanan traveled to Lynchburg area WalMarts with a plea for assistance. They received 50 bags of Christmas gifts for veterans at the Salem Veteran’s Administration. 13-14 central Virginia Walmarts participated in the drive. The duo delivered the gifts earlier this month to be packaged and gifted during the Christmas season.
