American Legion posts to help communities

American Legion Auxiliary member Marilyn Falker helps guests at the Christmas dinner choose a knitted hat.

Military veterans in and around this region are invited for a special service session at the Seaside American Legion Post 99 located at 1315 Broadway Street in Seaside. National and state teams along with local post members from The American Legion will be in town to discuss veterans’ benefits and service and kick off this community and veteran service campaign within the community.

Veterans are invited to Post 99 to learn more about the American Legion and veteran benefits. Membership and veteran information staff will be available on Jan. 25 and Jan. 26, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and Jan. 27, from 9 a.m. to noon.

A veteran service officer will be available to assist area veterans with claims or other veteran benefit related questions during these times.

In keeping with the nearly 100-year tradition of the American Legion, posts in this area will focus on community service and assistance to veterans. The scope and nature of the posts’ community service is determined by its members and with input from local civic and community officials.
