IAEGER, W. Va (WVVA)-- A national VFW leader makes a stop in McDowell County.

Veterans of Foreign Wars commander in Chief William Thien visited Iaeger to greet area veterans. 

His mission-- to thank them for how they serve their communities and make sure they feel appreciated for their work.

For Harold Fairbanks, Iaeger's Senior Vice Commander, this was an honor he won't forget.

"We're down here in a little place," he said, "and it's so pleasing to see someone of his caliber and his position come down here and visit us."

Thien and his fellow leaders told the members of Iaeger VFW Post 1144 that they are a prime example of all a VFW should be.
