The ServeNebraska Step Forward Awards were held at Quarry Oaks Golf Club in Ashland, NE on Friday, October 26. These awards are given to those who volunteer to provide essential support in their communities. One of those award recipients for the Veteran Volunteer Award was Dell Moninger.
According to the ServeNebraska Step Forward Award news release, Dell served 13 years in the Army Reserves, including one year in Iraq. While in Iraq, he was the non-commissioned officer or NCO in charge of refueling station for three months before going out on the road providing security for those delivering supplies. He received the Bronze Star for his service in Iraq. When VFW Post 3576 was in jeopardy of closing due to lack of member participation, Dell became commander. Membership since has exceeded 100% of the goal. He has implemented new and exciting ideas such as a monthly newsletter that goes to all VFW members and is funded by ads from local businesses.
