Legionnaire receives 70-year membership award

Cliff Reynolds, a member of Post 547 in Monroeville, Ohio, was recently honored for his commitment to The American Legion for 70 continuous years. Post 547 Commander Jim Bores presented Reynolds with a plaque commemorating his Legion membership.

"Commander Bores was proud of Cliff and felt privileged to be able to present Cliff with his 70-year award," said Bob Good, vice commander of Post 547.

Reynolds, a World War II Navy veteran, served aboard the USS Milwaukee as well as the USS Alfred A. Cunningham. He was discharged in 1945.

Reynolds has served as Post 547’s vice commander, second vice commander and chaplain, and he currently serves on the post’s color guard. He also opens the post in the morning, prepares food, puts away delivery supplies and helps maintain the post. Reynolds often attends monthly meetings and "his input is always highly considered," Good said.
