Letter: American Legion Post welcomes flag help


In the Sept. 13 Daily Courier, a letter-writer chose to assume that American Legion Post 6 in Prescott is politically partisan because our always flying flag was not at half staff for Senator Ted Kennedy.

As a member, I declare that no such condition exists. Our by-laws forbid partisan political activity. If we make a mistake it is only that - a mistake.

Many of us are older veterans and we solicit new younger members to join us and help with the many things we do for the veterans at their hospital, for our youth in the community and for those who may have special needs. We have an Auxiliary and a Sons of the American Legion group. Many in our community are eligible to participate and help us - and perhaps add a little memory to our sometimes forgetful brains.

If your correspondent sincerely wishes to make sure no such oversight happens again, she may choose to join us and work with us. I believe she is eligible because her family members have served in the military. She is welcome.
