In September of 2018, two members of William C. Stacey Post 206 were honored at the University of Washington Husky Football games as Hometown Heroes. Having been nominated for their serviced in the community and service to the nation, co-founder and Vice Commander Joey Hernandez (Navy) and Seattle Police Officer and Marine, Garth Lindelef, were both honored at two football home games for the UW Huskies!

The Hometown Heroes program was meant to recognize veterans or civil servants in the state of Washington who have done great things for our community, and it was an amazing honor that two of our members were nominated and awarded this distinct honor. We are proud to be members in this community, and to have members with deep roots to the University of Washington, which has an amazing Veteran program for their student veterans!
