GROSS-YAKSH POST

WELCOME TO GROSS-YAKSH POST

Teamwork ~ Leadership ~ Commitment
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
When North Milwaukee veterans were discussing a name for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post they were organizing, the names of the Gross and Yaksh brothers were frequently mentioned. They had grown up in this area, attended Custer High School, and were well  known and well liked.  Someone presented the idea of combining the two names, so Gross-Yaksh became the Post name.
