Wednesday evening, September 18, many veterans gathered at the Post to celebrate the birthday of the United States Air Force. The tradition of celebrating the “birthday” of each of the services represented in the American Legion was begun with our summer celebration of the United States Coast Guard. On October 13th, the Post will honor the Navy’s birthday while November 10th is reserved for the US Marine Corps. In June of 2014, the Post will complete the year and the fifth of the Armed Forces annual service centered celebration with the US Army. Amber Jenkins, Post Manager, provided a wonderful assortment of food and snacks which were devoured by the many people in attendance.

Bob Eagley not only found some of his old uniform (notice the old style stripes) but provided many of the decorations that made the party very meaningful. Mike was the official taste-tester of the meatballs and pronounced them outstanding!
