Dalton was one of the first Commanders at VFW Post 2514 that I served with. As the Quarter Master under Dalton's leadership we participated in many events together. Promoting special activities was one of Dalton's admirable fortes.

My Prayers go out to his family and past associates in New Bern and Havelock VFW's
