George Smith has waited over 40 years to become a member of The American Legion. PC Wayne Kaikko and Commander Dave Swiderski welcome George as the first applicant under the ruling of the LEGION Act. This act opens membership to veterans from Dec 7, 1941, until Congress declares an end of war.
Legionnaire Smith was signed first thing Wednesday morning after the passage of the act Tuesday evening.
Congrats George!!!! Thank you to Past Commander Wayne Kaikko for the narrative.
Francis Scott Key Post 11 is the largest and one of the oldest posts in the great state of Maryland.
