Ken Heisner inspects “Lady Luck’s” trailer hitch

It was Heisner’s idea to unite all service organizations in

Citrus County to serve needy veterans. He and the veterans have

been dedicated to the philosophy of “Veterans Helping Veterans

ever since.

CID 192 Commander Herman (“Hank”) Butler notes that

Heisner has served the Chapter since its inception as Treasurer,

Secretary, and 1st Vice Commander. He is now a Director

Emeritus. Butler commented that, “Ken was 102’s Commander

when we conducted the first organizational meeting for the coalition.

It is an honor for me to have served with him, and he will

always be a lifetime member of CID 192.”

Speaking of Butler, he worked with Heisner to build the

Chapter’s vehicle, “Lady Luck.” A retired Command SgtMaj

from the Florida National Guard donated the frame. The seats are

red velvet church pews made available after a church upgrade.

Heisner did all the painting, while Neville Anderson provided

the flags and decorations.
