Honor & Remembrance

After nearly 70 years, Gladys "Bunny" Strong, a Marine, became a member of The American Legion.

Legionnaire’s goal is to help warship return to Normandy. But along the way, he is inspiring others and re-energizing interest in the war’s history.

Terry Woodburn served 15 years as the state adjutant and was involved with the Legacy Run from its beginning 10 years ago.

The American Legion places a high priority on honoring and remembering those who dedicated their lives to keeping our nation safe. This web page is dedicated to their stories.
