My wife and her parents are members of American Legion Post 933 in Hatfield, Pa. I am a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Post 933. On Oct. 25, 2016, my son Liam Daley officially became an Eagle Scout! For his Eagle Project he chose to create a "Remembrance Garden" for all five branches of the military. The seed for this idea came from a poem he received called "America Remember Me."
With all the negative media against the flag, I wanted to share with you a young man honoring the red, white and blue. In the spring of 2016 Liam designed, oversaw the project, made the benches, cut and painted the "Battlefield Cross" silhouette and obtained donations for the project. The grave markers and flags were donated by the VA office of Montgomery County, Pa. His final piece was a secret (even from the post and the grandparents) till the dedication on Memorial Day: a stone with the poem "Remember Me"!
At this dedication he was blessed to meet a WWII vet from the post, who has since passed away.
This project took over 480 man hours, and no cost and low maintenance for Post 933. It is an area where you can truly remember and reflect!
