June 14, 2014 was Flag Day. It was also the perfect day to hold a fundraiser to benefit vets.
On the heals of the tragedy that befell resident Pvt. Aaron Toppen, Mokena resident Nicki Serbin came up with the idea to hold a fundraiser at the Mokena VFW Post 725 to raise money for The Wounded Warrior Project and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (I.A.V.A.) Titled “Serve Our Vets,” Serbin asked Americans to join the cause to support those vets.
