In the September 1994 75th anniversary issue of The American Legion, American Legion Past National Commander E. Roy Stone’s “This We Believe” essay was published. And on Sept. 12, 1994, it was entered into the congressional record. An excerpt from that message was recently recorded, with video accompaniment, by South Carolina Past Department Adjutant Jimmy Hawk, as part of the Legion’s 100th anniversary commemoration. The video is downloadable for use at post meetings or to share on websites and social media.

The bags cost $2.50 and they're reusable. Shop Giant at Braddock and Rte 123 during September and get a bag. This will go a long way to help us support veterans, youth and our community.
