Our Post meeting day has changed! We now meet on the Second Saturday of the Month. Same time, same place, different Saturday. This month our meetings are on Saturday the 14th of September.

Well, another busy month has come and gone. I am pleased that the Legion could help out Rob and Wendy with a fund raiser after their fire. Thank you to all who helped make it happen.

William Shuttleworth, a 70-year-old Air Force Vietnam vet who is walking from Maine to California to raise awareness of Veterans issues, “10 Million Steps For Vets”. William passed through Yarnell last week. A health issue prevented him from spending more time with us than I had hoped. I did get to spend a couple of hours with him, he is a very interesting person. We wish him the best of luck on the rest of his journey.

With President Trump’s signature on the “LEGION Act”, the extension of the ongoing declared period of war was extended back to Dec. 7, 1941. The congressionally approved act is a way to honor thousands of veterans who were killed or wounded on duty during periods not previously considered a time of war. The only change is that Congress has reduced the number of eligibility periods from seven to two. They are April 6, 1917, to Nov. 11, 1918, and Dec. 7, 1941, and continuing. No other restrictions are changed.
