The Stouten-Kendig-Miller VFW Post 4795, established on December 10, 1945, is named after three Windber servicemen who gave the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefield during World War II.
Chief Petty Officer James Stouten, U.S. Navy, lost his life on December 7, 1941 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. He was serving onboard the USS Oklahoma and was the first Windber military member to be killed by the enemy in World War II.
Staff Sergeant Frederick R. Kendig, U.S. Army Air Force, lost his life July 21, 1944 while on an aerial raid over Germany. He was serving as a gunner and radioman on a bomber. Sergeant Kendig was one of six brothers serving in the military, the most from any Windber Family.
Sergeant Richard F. Miller, U.S. Army, lost his life on July 26, 1944 in France. He was posthumously awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French Government. The Medal is similar to the American Bronze and Silver Star.
