Nary a new visitor comes into Evans-Blitz Post 922 in Canadensis, Pa., without spending some time examining our patch board. The patches were donated by a member of our post who has been an American Legion member for over 60 years, and include patches from all branches of service representing years of collecting and countless hours of research by members of our Auxiliary to identify and label each individual patch. We often see visitors pointing out particular patches, often their own unit or the unit of a parent or grandparent. This board is one of the highlights of our new remodeled post. If you ever find yourself in northeast Pennsylvania, stop in and check it out!
