ISHPEMING - Ishpeming's Veterans of Foreign Wars Martin J. Lassila Post 4573 remains closed after the VFW Department of Michigan issued a suspension order for the chapter on Nov. 7 - though the post remained open for a time after that.

The doors to the building have now been chained and padlocked.

"They're on suspension due to noncompliance of national bylaws," said Stuart Billey, state adjutant for the VFW Dept. of Michigan in Lansing. But the details of the suspension are not being commented on at this time.

Billey said the post has 90 days from the date of suspension to comply with the organization's bylaws, or its charter will be revoked.
