Kim Harney
Asst. Treasurer -

I am proud to be part of a family with a long line of military service.  My three grandfathers (USMC, Army & Coast Guard) served in WWII and Korea; my two uncles (USMC), my father (USMC), and my husband (USAF) all served in Vietnam.   

In 1978 under the eligibility of my father, I joined the Sierra Vista Jr. Girls Unit to Auxiliary 9972.  At the age of 16, I joined the VFW Auxiliary of which I have been a life member for 44 years.

I moved to Florida in 1981 to pursue my degree at the University of Florida.  After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education, I stayed in Florida where I taught special needs students. I later earned a Masters in Special Education from Valdosta University.  I met my husband and we were married in 2002.  In 2005, we made the move to Sierra Vista to be closer to my family.  At that time, I got more involved in the VFW Auxiliary.I am currently the Auxiliary Treasurer, Department Assistant Treasurer, Webmaster and Newsletter Editor.  On the National level, I am the National Conductor.

I retired from teaching in May of 2020 after 29 years.  

I enjoy watching college sports, especially Florida Gators, reading, traveling and spending time with my family.
