The Harry E. Anderson VFW Post 9545 in New Lenox hosts a fish fry every Friday in its banquet room, but Friday, July 19’s fish fry was a little more special as the VFW helped welcome home Staff Sgt. Antonio Cap, an Air Force firefighter. 

Cap is a Lincoln-Way East graduate.

A packed room, where some may not have known Cap was coming in, still gave a big applause and shed some tears.
