The Daly family has given the Aberdeen Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post #224 an unrestricted donation. The $80,000 gift was given by Lisa N. (Daly) Mefford of Las Vegas, NV and James E. Daly of Aberdeen. The donation was given in honor of Dr. John F. Daly, Second Class Pharmacist Mate in the Navy during WWII, as well as LtCol. Scott Mefford, USAF Retired, Captain James E. Daly, USMC Retired, and all the other veterans from Aberdeen.
The donation is unrestricted which means that the current members of the Post will determine how the funds are used.
