During the 1940's four "boys" went off to fight in World War II. They were (in no
particular order), C.J. "Jack " Mains, Jack Short, Hugh Spain and Fred Morton
Hughes. The only one that did not return was Fred Morton Hughes. The other three
are considered to be the founders of this Post and Fred Morton Hughes legacy
lives on as the Post "name sake."
