Please find below the link to a TV show called “Faces and Places” that aired on
Armstrong Cable TV (channel 100) during the Veterans Day weekend (2018)
in the Pittsburgh/Butler viewing area.
This TV interview represents a Post 548 initiative to bring to the attention of our local
community the important occasion of the 100th anniversary of The American Legion.
Our “objective” was to look sharp and give a professional interview that would in turn:
-promote the American Legion mission(s)
-promote the American Legion programs
-promote membership in The American Legion
-promote the celebration of the 100th anniversary of The American Legion
(Note: all questions were answered impromptu, we had NO questions in advance)
I want to thank the following people for their help in the creation of this TV show:
-Armstrong Cable TV;
Larry Berg – Host
Carmen Bianco - Producer
-26th District Leadership
Jeff Olson, Commander
