Lowrance Dental and Rockwall's Post 117 want you -- D-Day for V-Day!


Terry Fisher Post 117/Rockwall's D-Day for V-Day

Rockwall, TX

“To consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.” This is the last sentence in the Preamble to our American Legion Constitution, and it creates a duty for American Legion veterans to help veterans. Terry Fisher Post 117 in Rockwall, Texas, conscious of this duty, collaborated with a caring dental practice to provide free dental care to Rockwall County veterans. The post planned, organized and publicized the event — D-Day (Dental Day) for V-Day (Veterans Day).
D-Day for V-Day, held in conjunction with Veterans Day, is in its second year. Lowrance Dental’s dentists, dental technicians and hygienists provided free exams, cleaning and first-line dental procedures to 77 deserving veterans on Nov. 9. The total donated effort amounted to more than $31,000, but more importantly, D-Day closed a medical coverage gap allowing needy veterans to obtain very expensive dental care at no cost.
Mark Kipphut, Post 117’s commander, said “this is how we thank veterans for their service.”
