If you are a veteran and a member in good standing of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), AMVETS, or any other creditable veterans organization and reside in the Lehighton area and would like to join us.
Lehighton UVO is a veteran based community minded group who promotes the core values of Americanism.
