SIKESTON -- Veterans in the area who have returned from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan looking for someone who understands have a place in Sikeston tailor made for them.
As of Thursday, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3174 will have provided a place where those who have been an American soldier in a foreign land can gather for 70 years.

Vaughan said he became a member of Post 3174 around 1949 or '50.
