Lenox Couple Donates to Local Veterans Organization

LENOX, Mass. — The Matthew & Hannah Keator Family Foundation recently donated $25,000 to the Lenox VFW Conklin-Lane-Coakley Post 12079 in memory of Matthew's lifelong friend Army Sgt. Paul Kastrinakis.
 
"Sarge was one of my oldest friends and I made a promise to his family to do what we can to keep his memory alive and honor his service and patriotism to our country," Matthew said. "We hope that these funds help in some small way to offset expenses to our local military families."
 
Kastrinakis passed away on Feb. 7, 2019. The Keators, through working with their foundation and the Lenox VFW Post, have established a scholarship fund to be given out each year to members of the community with ties to the military.
 
Kastrinakis served for more than 20 years as a State Police trooper as well as a decorated Green Beret who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
