It’s the same presentation given each year, but members of the Wellman American Legion Post 427 are glad to share the importance of being a Veteran. They were given the opportunity to share at each of the Mid-Prairie elementary schools as well as the middle school Thursday and Friday, November 10 and 11.
Commander Chuck Singleman says members of the Post are glad to share the importance of being a Veteran. “I think they need to appreciate what Veterans have done,” he says. “I think a lot of people do not understand what freedom is in this country. They take it for granted. They don’t understand what freedom is until you’ve fought for it.”
