The American Legion, Department of Virginia, 17th District

17th District,

I have taken a quick walkthrough of the Post (Lorton Post 162) and it is completely destroyed inside. I spoke with the GM Ann Kuntz and SAL Commander Randy plus Past ALR Rider Director George Frank.

From discussion with them, it appears it was an electrical fire that started in the attic. Here are some photos at the scene.

District and Department leadership has been informed.

Respectfully,

Dave Wallace
17th District Adjutant
