VFW Barry Lee Osborn Post 6128 Serving Avon, Brownsburg, Danville, Pittsboro, Plainfield and Greater Hendricks County Area
The VFW Post 6128 was founded in the 1970's in Pittsboro, Indiana and Moved to Brownsburg, Indiana during the 1990's where it is currently based. We hold our meetings at the American Legion, Brownsburg Post 331 on the first Monday of each month at 8:00PM.
The Post is named after a Vietnam Army Veteran Sgt Barry L. Osborn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Osborn of Brownsburg. He was killed during hostile fire in the Long An Province, South Vietnam, northeast of Ben Luc Bridge on July 3rd, 1969. He was serving as an infantryman with the 9th Division. A recipient of four Purple Heart medals and the Silver Star, Sgt Osborn was a 1966 graduate of Brownsburg High School. He had been serving in the US Army since February 1968 and had been awarded two Bronze Star medals for valor, an Air Medal along with the Purple Heart awards and three stars for wounds in combat.
His name is on the Wall on Panel 21 W, Line 55.
The VFW Post 6128 continues to grow at a slow pace; however in 2010 we were awarded three awards for our rapid growth and we were the only Post to be awarded all three awards for all three categories; Membership, 100% Membership two years in a row and growth in numbers in less than a year from 37 members to 228 members.
Our Post has contributed to the Hendricks County area by operating fund raisers, cook-outs, flag retirement ceremonies and flag education at the grade schools in Avon along with the American Legion, Avon Post 145. We have also given class room history education speeches at Ben Davis High School.
This Post will continue to be a part of the Hendricks County Community in any way we can.
