Post 1 Commander's Notes

Added on 12.27.2018

Our 2018 year included numerous Legion Family events, numerous accomplishments. Again, this year Post 1 excelled with our Veterans Day activities including Legion members speaking at various schools, visiting Retirement Homes, the Veterans Day Parade, and our Legion Day Program. The LCW Post 1 Color Guard, outstanding always, were at the heart of all these events.

Our organizations are often defined by an individual who sees an opportunity and takes the lead. The year’s numerous achievements include the gift packages sent to the deployed 140th. Same individual recently volunteered as our Americanism Chair. Thank you.
