Brunswick County has a large veteran population. The new post will help veterans with unmet needs from financial to emotional support and beyond.

Plans to form the post began November of last year. A spokesperson says the turn around time for the open date was fast.

VFW Post 12196 meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the banquet hall at Blossom’s Restaurant at Magnolia Greens.
