South St. Paul’s WWII Last Man’s Club is down to three
Running his finger down the list, Ken Lawrence reminisces about the names he reads.
As chaplain of South St. Paul VFW Post 295’s World War II Last Man’s Club, Lawrence has read over the names on that list countless times.
“You look down the roster, and it brings back memories of most everyone. That’s where we live, in our memories now, anyhow,” Lawrence says.
