VFW Torrellas Award

VFW Leadership Award

Derek Torrellas, commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States New Haven Post 12150, recently received the Department of Connecticut’s top leadership award. The VFW Connecticut All-State Post Commanders award was presented by Past Department of Connecticut Commander Robert Bailey at the VFW New haven in February. The award, a signature white hat, is based on a full evaluation of a post’s participation in VFW programs, attention to administration and veterans outreach. Torrellas, a resident of Hamden and former Southern Connecticut State University Veterans Association president and graduate, is a charter member of Post 12150 and has served as post commander since 2018.
