Bolingbrook VFW Post boasts 420 percent hike in membership
While many VFWs struggle for members, Bolingbrook’s is flourishing
BOLINGBROOK – Summer is “busy season” for the Bolingbrook-based Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 5917.
Led by Commander Robert Adame, Adjutant Herschel Nelson, Quarter Master Brian Juergensmeyer, and Past Commander and Illinois State Recruiter George Foy, the local band of brothers has recruited 127 new members since July 1.
It was only three years ago that VFW Post 5917 had 122 members; but, thanks to a few new recruiting tactics and revised event planning, the group has seen a remarkable 420 percent increase in three years, bringing their membership total to 521 veterans.
