2017 3rd Place “Post Most Active in Youth Activities”
VFW Post 3010 is the Chartered Organization for three Scout units in our Lincoln community: We actively support our scouting programs with funding and scholarships and are very proud of the scout leaders, volunteers, and kids that actively participate in many different community activities. Visit their web pages for more information about the scouting programs.
VFW Post 3010 is very proud of our Eagle Scouts. Troop 160 has young men becoming Eagle Scouts at a rate of five times the National Average. This is a great testament to the character of the young men, their families, and the Scout leaders that support this program.
Congratulations to our recent Eagle Scouts:
