An American Legion Operation Comfort Warriors grant was obtained with the Department of Alabama and used to get a 2023 five-passenger transport cart for the Birmingham VA Medical Center.
“The American Legion’s Operation Comfort Warriors program was created to provide ‘nonessentials’ – items that help wounded warriors' recovery but don’t usually show up as a budget line on government spreadsheets,” according to the American Legion website.
Members of the Post 911 family at the transfer ceremony on June 6 included Jana Avellana, Ron Bradstreet, Ginger Branson, Fred Hughes, Kyle Morrison and Lynn Thomas. Rico Hall, national executive committeeperson, was also in attendance.
