Post Commander  Glen Creselious welcomed those in attendance, expressing thanks to them for coming, stating: “We are here today to honor all the men and women who have served our great country.  Those who are serving now,  those who have served, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  To those who came back home, mangled and suffering from PTS, we at the American Legion want you to know if we can be of service to you in any way, just contact us and let us know, so please, when you see someone who has served or is serving our country, just stop for one second and say thanks.  You’ll never know how much that means to a veteran.”
