Missouri Post 626 participates in long-running parade

Bennett and Dennis Herrick Memorial Post 626 - Gladstone, MO

On Sept. 27, 2014, for the first time members of Gladstones Bennett and Dennis Herrick Memorial American Legion Post 626 participated in the 89th American Royal parade in downtown Kansas City.

“Being billed as 'A Star Spangled Salute' made it a draw for us,” said Douglas Millison, the post's historian. “A lot of grateful citizens and veterans lined Grand Boulevard which made it really special for us."

The American Legion marched down Grand during the convention of 1921 after being in existence for only two years, what a memorable experience.
