Legion Post 281 Members and Friends,
All of you know about the devastation that occurred in Mayfield, Kentucky last month, just before Christmas, resulting from the tornadoes. American Legion Post 26 of the town of Mayfield was deeply affected. Their building was all but destroyed along with the rest of the downtown area. As you would expect of former military guys and gals, the members of that post have united to serve affected members and the many citizens that were deeply impacted, while they personally attempt to recover as well. I am proud to report that many Legion posts from across the country have donated as well.
My Uncle Darrel Snow, a Korean War era veteran, was a member of American Legion Post 26 of Mayfield. I proudly wore my American Legion service cap at his funeral and teared up when I offered a final salute to an uncle and fellow veteran as he reported to “The Post Everlasting”. He was a proud American. As with all veterans, we share a bond of dedication to our country, our communities, and to each other.
We, members of the Mt. Juliet American Legion Post 281, want to reach out and offer our empathy to the community, so we are giving a cash donation of $500 to Legion Post 26 of Mayfield, to be given to whomever the Post deems to be in need. Other members from Post 281 of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee are donating additional sums, as well. If anyone would like to join us, for whatever amount, please let me know via Facebook private message, or through our www.mtjulietalpost281.com website “contact us,” and I’ll add it to our total donation.
I’m taking a check to Post 26’s Commander this coming week. I know he will be grateful for whatever is given.
