Gladstone (Mich.) August Mattson Sons of The American Legion honors continuous membership

Gladstone, MI

Two members of Gladstone's August Mattson Squadron 71 of the Sons of The American Legion were recently honored for 40 years of continuous membership. Robert Druding and Jack Deneau were presented with a 40-year membership pin and honorary certificate.

Clearly, reaching this milestone is a very special occasion. It is also a very special occasion for our squadron since it is a testimony of their loyalty to the Sons over the years. Both are valued members of our squadron, and their continued contribution is vital for the Sons to continue to be successful in helping our fellow Legionnaires and veterans.

We are here because of the veterans, so let’s help a veteran whenever we can. The Sons of The American Legion was founded for preserving The American Legion's traditions and programs while improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
