April Foust makes Rockwood VFW history

Rockwood Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4782 appointed its first female commander last year.

April Foust and her family have a lengthy history serving their country.

“I’m third-generation Marine,” Foust said. “My father (Jonathan Foust), three of my uncles, my grandfather — all were in the Marines. I’m the first girl,” she said.

“My son says he’s going to be a Marine. His Dad is a Marine.”

It was important to Foust to serve as commander.
