Fenton Canteen – May 2017

The Fenton Canteen is an excellent way to learn more about Vets Finding Vets.  Vets Finding Vets is a veteran program that is organized by the Fenton History Center.  The group meets regularly at the Hall House to help enrolled veterans trace their families history, look up old service buddies, flesh out the service records for other veterans in their families and/or help with other projects pertaining to veterans.
