Support for our Medal of Honor Recipients

Janine Stange, known as the “National Anthem Girl” because she completed her goal of singing our nation’s National Anthem in all 50 states, requested our assistance again to flood the living Medal of Honor Recipients with cards and letters when they attend a luncheon in their honor in March.  Our Unit participated in honoring the 75 recipients last year and was proud to do it again.  Unfortunately, the number is now at 71.  Our Unit sought the assistance of the local Boy and Girl Scouts, a Daisy Troop, the high school students and a nursery school class and sent them 132 handmade cards and letters, 3 signed Boy Scout troop hats and 3 plaques for the 3 heroes we were given to honor.  Pictures have started to appear on Facebook under Janine Stange.  More will follow.  Following the luncheon, Janine Stange sent us two signed photos with a thank you message for our participation.  One hangs in the American Legion Hall and the other was presented to the nursery school class who also received an American Legion Auxiliary Certificate of Appreciation and American Flags.  They have proudly displayed these outside their classroom for all to see.
