BROWNTOWN - On Tuesday afternoon, bags of clothing, couches, furniture and a number of cardboard boxes lined VFW Auxiliary 2312 president Vicki Haffele's garage as she and other members of the auxiliary and post awaited their visitors in rural Browntown. As a truck pulled up with the words "Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin" and "Serving Those Who Served" displayed proudly on each side, Haffele threw her hands up in celebration as she stood in the doorway, announcing to the other five members of her group that it had arrived. Its arrival signaled time for work.
