PETERSBURG -- Two men in Our Town make sure those who've served feel right at home. Both are military men who are Hometown Heroes.

Jim Oshana and Matthaw Willis are former Marines, but are not from the same generation. Oshana served in Vietnam while Willis served in Iraq.

Both run VFW Post 6871. They work together to hold countless events, all to make sure veterans here have what they need.

Next weekend, the VFW is hosting a gold tournament where proceeds will help veterans who are going on the Honor Flight.
