Daddow-Isaacs Dallas American Legion Post 672 celebrates Legion centennial

Dallas, PA

Daddow-Isaacs Dallas American Legion Post 672, which celebrated its 80th anniversary two years ago, will conduct events to celebrate the national Legion's 100th anniversary. Clarence J. Michael, post historian, has commandeered the display case at the Back Mountain Memorial Library for the month of March to display the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which he visited when he was stationed in Stuttgart, Germany, with the 532nd Military Intelligence Battalion; the 100th anniversary of The American Legion; steins he sent home from Germany; and a history of the library, which was founded to memorialize all veterans after they returned from WWII. The mayor of Dallas, Tim Carrol, will also offer a proclamation as well as State Rep. Karen Boback, and State Sen. Lisa Baker on behalf of the centennial. The Wall For Honor Vietnam Memorial exhibit will appear in Plymouth in September.
