VFW quartermaster indicted



(The Center Square) – An Ohio grand jury indicted a North Carolina man who served as the quartermaster at a Columbus-area VFW post.

Guy A. Andonia faces four charges related to the theft of more than $35,000 from the post, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost says.

According to the indictment, prosecutors say Andonia developed a check-writing scheme while serving as quartermaster for VFW Post 4044, stealing $35,007.30 from the post’s charitable accounts.

“Stealing from a VFW post isn’t just a theft of money – it’s a betrayal of the very values our veterans fought to uphold,” Yost said.

Investigators say that between October 2017 and September 2019, while Andonian was living and working in Ohio, checks with notes in the memo line such as “help veterans in need” were being issued from the VFW post’s charitable accounts to be cashed by co-conspirators in Union County. The co-conspirators turned roughly 50% of the stolen money over to Andonian.
