PSA: Honoring Our Veterans of Post 24

This Public Service Announcement is from cartoonist Steve Artley who has been working on this program.

JOIN US AT THE AMERICAN LEGION THIS SATURDAY FOR A FUNDRAISER AND SCREENING OF "Heroes of Post 24." This is the first in an on-going series of video documentaries preserving the oral history of our veterans. 

The project was established to preserve oral history of members of American Legion Post 24 in Alexandria, VA through a series of documentaries. A fundraiser is being held at the Post this Saturday (May 5) to help underwrite this ongoing project by filmmaker John Napolitano, USMC. If you are in the Alexandria area, stop in on Saturday 5:00 to 8:00 for the launch party and screening of the first installment. We'll have food, beverage specials, and raffles. Meet the filmmaker. Meet the first interviewees, including Bill MacNamara who published Stars & Stripes during WWII. On the video he tells of getting out the first issue in Normandy shortly after the D-Day invasion. Come on in for good food, fascinating conversation, and honorable history. 

If you can't make the event, stop down to Market Square for the Farmers Market in Old Town Alexandria earlier in the day. Fellow Sons of the American Legion member Russ Crager and I will be manning the "Heroes of Post 24" booth from 8:30 to 11:00 AM. We'll be collecting donations, selling event tickets, and acquainting the public with our projects.
