During this time when our country is dealing with the COVID-19 virus, American Legion Post 154 in Rathdrum, Idaho, completed its Buddy Check, calling all 130 of our members to inquire how they were doing and if they needed anything. Almost all of the members contacted expressed appreciation for the check and for the Legion's concern.
One 84-year-old Legion member told us that he was having a difficult time getting to the grocery store. We arranged for other Legion members to pick up a shopping list, do his shopping and return the groceries to his home. Additionally, our Legion has offered this service for both groceries and medications to other members and have also offered rides to medical appointments, if that was needed.
This is the time for all of us to pull together and serve our fellow Legionnaires and others in our community as we deal with this current crisis.
