The 111th Atttack Wing, Horsham, PA
Post 3258, through a myriad of programs and activities, supports the families and Service men and women of the 111th. We participate in numerous events offering benefits counseling through our Service officers, food cards to make those holidays go a little easier, especially when the Service member is deployed or experiencing some financial hardships, and just monetary donation to the FRG itself for them to disperse the monies as they deem necessary. We are always here to help. For example, we have offered specific support for an injured unit member, as well as a veteran family in desperate need in the way of home repair,
Below are links to the home page of the 111th Attack Wing website, and to their Military Family Readiness Group (FRG) website. We invite you to check out these sites.

55th Brigade Support Battalion, Sellersville
Similar to the 111th Support Wing, we also support the 55th through the same efforts. Participating in many post activities, we lend a hand in guiding the Service Members through the sometimes difficult task of filing a VA claim. We directly support the families, again through the use of food cards, and also through direct donations to the FRG (Family Readiness Group) itself. We share in their achievements while trying to make any bumps in the road less noticeable. We make sure the Service Member knows their family is well cared for while they are out serving our Country. It's one less item the need to worry about. Below is a condensed history of the 55th and all they participate in.
