Re The American Legion — 94th birthday 2013
We are the largest veterans’ organization, and we are celebrating our 94th birthday on March 15.
We were founded on four pillars — Veterans, Youth, National Defense and Americanism
Milestones are author of the GI Bill of Rights Act of 1944; creation of the Department of Veteran Affairs; supporters of Scouting since 1919 (boys and girls); American Legion baseball; Junior Shooting; Boys and Girls State; JrROTC; Oratorical program; supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network; American Legion’s legacy scholarship; Operation Comfort Warriors Program; and American Legion Riders.
We, the Legionnaires, the Woman’s Auxiliary, and the Son’s of the American Legion would like to thank the citizens of Greenville and Hunt County for supporting the American Legion Posts in Greenville, Commerce, Wolfe City and West Tawakoni, as we support our fellow veteran’s and the citizens of Hunt County.

Why no mention?
Why was there not even one reference to one of the all-time battles of our armed forces (June 6, 1944) in today’s of June 6, 2013.
The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Auxiliary (DAVA) of Hunt County recently held our first pancake breakfast to benefit our veterans.
James Evans has been appointed by L-3’s mayor to serve on the L-3 committee, along with the mayor and mayor Pro-tem Dailey.
Help bring closure
I am writing as a caring and concerned citizen who resides in Hunt County On behalf of Carey Mae Parker.
Making a point
I just read Mayor Reid’s letter. I would like to make a point and finish upbeat.
