The S/Sgt Arthur F. DeFranzo Post 2346 VFW
was chartered on January 6, 1932.
It has since been renamed in honor of Saugus' citizen,
and W.W. II veteran, Arthur DeFranzo, who lost his life while trying to save
other members of his battalion on D-Day 1944,
while attacking German forces on the beaches of Normandy, France.
He was posthumously awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor
for his brave and valiant actions.
