Thank you Home Depot

At the regular meeting of the Frank C. Parker, Jr. & Son American Legion Post 901 on Tuesday evening March 14th, 2015 a citation award was presented by Commander Bill Keyes to Michael Palumbo, The Home Depot Store Manager and Brian Jozos Supervisor, for their outstanding support of Veterans in the community. Personnel from the Home Depot store on 600 South Trooper Road in West Norriton mulched, trimmed shrubbery and cleaned up the Veterans Memorial located at the Jefferson Firehouse in West Norriton. Home Depot is also assisting in the installation of a Bocce Ball Court at the Veterans Center in Spring City in cooperation with the DAV that is to be used by veterans living at the center. Having such a court will enable the veterans to be outside and get a little exercise and sunshine. The effort shown by Home Depot’s management and personnel is well appreciated.

Vietnam Memorial Service

On a rainy Tuesday evening 10 November 2015 a Veterans Day Memorial service was held at the Vietnam Memorial at Main and Swede Streets in Norristown. An Honor Guard from the Norristown High School JROTC presented the colors and prayers were cited. The individual names of each deceased Montgomery County Vietnam veteran, their rank, branch of service and year of death were recited. As were the names of deceased service personnel from recent wars to also honor them. Thankfully, some volunteers erected awnings to protect most of those in attendance from the inclement weather and the local Fire Company supplied lighting for the occasion.

Still serving: it's who we are

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation's most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Heroes to Hometowns program connects local Legionnaires with recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing a variety of support activities. The Legion raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families and to provide college scholarship opportunities.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires' sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.

The American Legion's success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
