Veterans … Atten-tion!

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

Right here in Auburn Hills (as all around the rest of the nation) is a post representing the world’s largest veteran’s organization – The American Legion.  The Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 and membership is available to any veteran or active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces who served during any of our country’s conflicts since 1914.  The veteran need not have been deployed.


At 96 Churchill is the Hill-Gazette American Legion Post #143. This outstanding civic-minded neighbor is instrumental in the City’s Memorial Day parade.  They also hold various parties throughout the year including Christmas.  They also have a Color Guard available for veteran’s funerals.  They meet the first Tuesday of every month at the post.

If you are a vet or know one, look into The American Legion in your area. And to all veterans and active duty Armed Forces members … thank you all for your service.
