The update came from Phil Kraft, longtime commander of the VFW. After having broken the news with The Darien Times, Kraft stopped by Palmer's Market and said he's no longer serving in that position in a chat with Hersam-Acorn Radio, which had set up a broadcasting tent there Friday morning, May 15.

"After 15 years as post commander, I have stepped down," Kraft said, noting it was the first time he'd aired the news in public. "As of last Wednesday, [May 6,] we had installation of officers," he said.
The new VFW post commander will be U.S. Marine Corps and Operation Desert Storm veteran Scott VanDerheyden, according to Kraft.
...
The speaker for the ceremony this year, Kraft noted, is Darien native Chris Pintauro, a former naval flight officer.
...
"There's a constant restoration going on there," Kraft said of the cemetery. He explained that a few years ago, there was a major effort to clean up the darkening old headstones, and Arlington National Cemetery advised using power washers but no cleaning products.
"We got volunteers from all over the community, we got power washers, the state got involved," Kraft told Hersam-Acorn Radio. But there's been a recent change: "Now, suddenly it's okay to use a product, and the state has been coming down and doing it," he said.
"If you've noticed, the headstones have been whiter and brighter," Kraft added. "It's looking more and more like a mini Arlington."
...
Kraft agreed. "To go right down the middle of the Post Road and have people all along it standing and cheering, it's just great," he said.

From Monuments and Ceremonies Commission Chairman Phil Kraft's prepared comments for the ceremony:

A flag may be a flimsy bit of printed gauze, or a beautiful banner of finest silk. Its intrinsic value may be trifling or great; but its real value is beyond price, for it is a precious symbol of all that we and our comrades have worked for and lived for, and died for--a free nation of free people, true to the faith of the past, devoted to the ideals and practice of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy.

"It's really a wonderful way to take time out from the hustle and bustle and just take a step back and remember," said Phil Kraft, post commander for Darien's Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6933.
"It's nice to know that we can do the same thing that they do in Arlington for our servicemen," he said.
...
"We thank those who gave their lives to keep us free and we shall not forget you," Kraft said. "We will remember ... We're here today to say thank you and we were honored to know you."
"When you see a veteran or active member of the armed services, take a minute to thank them," he said.
