Lieutenant General Everett H. Pratt Jr
The Barrington Memorial VFW Post 7706 held our annual banquet on Sunday, June 12. We had the honor of hosting Lt. Gen. Everett Pratt, who was our keynote speaker of the night.
Lieutenant General Pratt retired after serving 33+ years in the United States Air Force. He commanded at all levels from Squadron to Numbered Air Force and is currently on the Board of Directors for Leave No Veteran Behind.
The Lieutenant General thanked VFW Post 7706 for our contribution to Leave no Veteran Behind. He then went on to discuss the importance of providing resources to homeless vets who want to turn their lives around.
At the banquet we also recognized the contributions of a number of our members, including: Commander Taylor Kennedy, Paul Corwin, and others.
