The John Vincent Daniels Jr. VFW Post 2813 has closed its doors for good, according to multiple reports.

The Sunnyside post served veterans of foreign wars for nearly a century. It moved to its current location in 2013.

But according to former commander Marvin Jeffcoat, who is also running for City Council, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented them from renting out the space.

Reports say the facility closed at the end of 2020.

In the meantime, members will use the nearby Catholic War Veterans Post 870 in Woodside.

Hopefully, membership will increase and VFW Post 2813 will come back.
