Joseph Freeman Post 476 Legionnaire and prior Navy service member Cara Hartman designed and created this new welcome sign for Post 476 in Wilkesville, Ohio. The new welcome sign was donated to the Joseph Freeman American Legion Post 476 by Cara and her husband, Derek Hartman.

Cara used Luminos red, white and blue stain for the stripes and Canton and wooden stars along with wooden lettering. The sign was made out of 4 x 8 sheet of 3/4 inch oak and mounted on two 12-foot 4 x 4 pressure-treated posts.

The new Post 476 welcome sign took just over three months to create and was unveiled at the post's monthly meeting held on June 10.
