POINCIANA VETERANS
I had the opportunity of interviewing the new

founded almost five years ago with the purpose
of bringing assistance to our resident veterans
in Poinciana. The new board is composed of
Commander Byron Woodruff, Vice Commander Louie
DeCato, Past Commander Charles Waters, Treasurer
Carlos Cardona, and Secretary Jackie DeFazio, ,
forming a Board with people whose service to the
USA is unquestionable.
Byron is a Vietnam 1st Calvary US Army veteran, Lou
DeCato served in the US Marine Corps in Vietnam,
Charles Waters served in several military branches
ranging from Second World War to Vietnam, Carlos
Cardona is a retired Coast Guard veteran who serve
Granada, Iraq (Desert Storm) and Panama and Jackie
DeFazio was an interpreter for US Air Force in Da
Nang, Vietnam. Undoubtedly, a group with meritorious service.
It is the purpose of the new directive to unite and grow the Club, bring about activities that will interest the
veterans as well as the public, and assist those veterans who require help.
Let us welcome this magnificent group who will continue to execute the objectives detailed by its founders.
