Greenwater Award

 

Post members recognized the community of Greenwater for the support and hospitality they have shown over the years.  The Greenwater community puts on a potluck dinner each year for the Warrior Walk hikers as they pass Chinook Pass.  They “Walk off the War” along the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mexico border to the Canadian border.
