Description

The Chamber is proud to recognize an outstanding member of the community, American Legion Post #560. The Post is headquartered at 3720 Alba Street.  Post #560 is a place where veterans can come and commiserate and enjoy fellowship with other veterans, and is the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s organization. These proud warriors serve their community and count on each other for veterans programs and resources. Today it serves the needs of all veterans and is committed to mentoring the youth of America. Not only does the Legion support current military personnel and veterans, it also sponsors American Legion Baseball, Boys State, Oratorical Contests and other activities for youth, and pushing for the adoption of a constitutional amendment to prohibit desecration of the U.S. flag. Active duty veterans can join, and children of active duty veterans are welcome as members.

 

The American Legion is the largest wartime veteran’s service organization with 2.4 million members in nearly every community in America. The Legion, established by an act of Congress in 1919, was instrumental in getting the original GI Bill through Congress and the creation of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Post Commander for Post #560 is Richard Voorhies. In the photo are Commander, Richard Voorhies, Peggy Monday (Legionnaire) and Naro Mak the public relations manager. The neighborhood Post is well recognized for its many public events including: comedy shows, fish fry’s, steak night, a chili cook-off, BBQ cook-off and the ever popular Gumbo cook-off.  Truly Legionnaires work for the betterment of their communities through the more than 14,000 posts across the nation.
