My wife had to talk me into joining The American Legion. I told her I could not stand next to these vets as my time served was peacetime. After joining P:ost 77 in Inverness, Fla.,, I felt it necessary to start improving the grounds in their backyard. They currently have two shuffleboard courts, one horseshoe pit and one bocce ball court. These areas have been severely neglected. I and several other members started cleaning up the area and rebuilding these play stations. We are currently in the process of getting in touch with other American Legion posts to start having American Legion tournaments.
