On Dec. 2 Legion Post 1276 in Syracuse, N.Y., held a holiday party for veterans and their caregiver families. The caregivers get some support from VA, so we decided that we needed to provide some support and fellowship for them. A holiday party was organized to provide a meeting place, dinner, Santa Claus, entertainment by a magician, Christmas gifts for all children up to 21, and a gift card to a local supermarket chain; also the service dogs that attended received stockings. Four area Legions came together to provide the monies for this holiday party: Eastwood, Dunbar, General Pulaski and Arthur Butler of Esst Syracuse. All families that attended were enthused and thankful for the support the Legions showed them.
