A moment in time

What military anniversary is marked on July 27?

The signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War on July 27, 1953. Although The American Legion’s eligibility period for that conflict extends to Jan. 31, 1955, to match the period as defined by Congress for benefits purposes, it was on July 27 that South Korea, North Korea, the United States and China signed the agreement ending hostilities.
Items from the Korean War and other Legion-era conflicts can be seen at the Legion’s National Headquarters in Indianapolis, in the fourth-floor Emil A. Blackmore Museum (http://www.legion.org/library/museum). Much of the museum’s holdings are donated by Legionnaires and others, and the displayed items change often. Among the newer acquisitions is a Korean War-era Army uniform belonging to Indianapolis native Flonoi Adams. Adams served in World War II as well as the Korean War, retiring as a major in 1955. He was a longtime member of Tillman H. Harpole Post 249 in Indianapolis and died in 1994.

Has The American Legion ever had a post in Istanbul?
