I thought it was on 7th st. between 4th and 5th. ave. I was in there a time or two with my dad who was a WWII vet. but you guys have me wondering if I'm right about the location.<quoted text>Hi Stevep,
Yep, you're correct, it was the Elks at 4th & 7th but you raised another interesting point. Where was the VFW when it was downtown? Sounds like a place that Dirt may have haunted.
I wasn't elegable to join since I was not in what was considered a shooting war. I was in the "cold war". I did border guard duty on the Chech. border with Russian tank guns a couple hundred yards away trained on us. When we moved, their guns moved. Pretty scary. We flipped the bird back and for and exchanged insults but since there was no shooting going on I couldn't join the VETS club.
