Fellow Legionnaires and friends:
New flags have been purchased and raised at the post. Instead of the same size, a larger 5′ x 8′ flag replaces the 4′ x 6′ U.S. flag. I thought a larger flag would take less of a beating from the wind and wear better. A new POW-MIA flag, printed on both sides, has also been purchased. It is the same size as the previous one, 3′ x 5′.
Both flags were purchased by your post commander and are a gift to the post. Thanks to all of you for supporting your post, from keeping the grounds neat to helping out with bingo to placing flags at Violet Hill.
Our veterans and families are watching and appreciate what you do.

Thanks again, and I hope you all have a memorable and reflective Memorial Day holiday weekend.
That is all. As you were.
Mike Kelley, Commander
American Legion Post 85, Perry
