Jacksonville , FL

Bruce Blanton was presented a 60-year membership certificate from the Sons of The American Legion on August 9, 2018, at their monthly general assembly meeting of Lakeshore Squadron 137 in Jacksonville, Fla. Bruce obtained his eligibility from his mother Bonnie Blanton's military service. Bonnie was Post 137's commander and longtime adjutant, and the 1972 Florida Service Officer of the Year. Bruce followed his mother's service to the Lakeshore 137 Legion Family by cooking at many of the Legion Family functions including the annual Police and Fire Appreciation Dinner, where usually over 600 first responders are served a BBQ dinner.
