“I'm very proud of her,” said Vietnam veteran Stephen Allen, who was visiting from Michigan to see daughter Stacy Swisher installed as Auxiliary treasurer. “The Legion is an organization dedicated to America's veterans and service members and I am proud that Stacy is a part of that mission.”

“American Legion Post 24 has been helping the veterans of our community since 1920,” Aramony said. “We look forward to doing more in the year ahead to honor those who have and continue to serve our country.”
