I love my post, Charles L. Martin Post 1948, Montgomery Ala. We are a newly established post this year. I have the honor of being our post's first service officer. We are growing fast, I believe because my fellow veterans are seeing a passion for the camaraderie The American Legion offers. I haven't felt this sense of belonging and purpose with fellow servicemembers since I left the Navy. Our post also serves as a program to help homeless veterans in our community, We actually have a transition program that gives my brothers in need a safe place to stay and rebuild their lives. No better feeling on earth than helping people!
