To the Editor:

Prisoner of War/Missing in Action and Connecticut Forget-Me-Nots recently held our annual benefit dance at VFW Post 1672 in New Milford.

Flashback's Eric Lundgren, Rick Planz, Roger Malumphy, Roger Cannavaro, Mike Gaudenzi, Lou Manoni and Dave Pitchard are, quite simply, the best.

Everyone had a great time listening and dancing to their outstanding classic rock.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to hold our annual dance at VFW Post 1672.

Thank you to the members of the VFW and Ladies Auxiliary for their generous support and concern for our POW/MIAs.
