Kent Island American Legion Post 278: Where Every Day is Veterans Day

Kent Island Post 278 - Stevensville, MD

The Month of September was a fantastic month to be a part of Post 298. Every weekend in September we celebrated our veterans with special events in our lounge. Each time we celebrated a different group of veterans starting off with those who served in World War II, followed by Korean War veterans, Vietnam and finally Desert Storm to present day vets. Every Saturday night we played special music from those specific eras!
Yes, Post 278 is a Legiontown Post! The 13th of September we loaded up the tour bus and trekked our way to the Perry Point Vet Center in Northeastern Maryland, where we spent the day with over 200 veterans recieving treatment at the center. Our bus was overflowing with donated items that included clothes, books, games, toiletries and more! We treated the veterans with a picnic and had an afternoon of "Casino" like atmosphere where the veterans had the opportunity to win all sorts of great items. This is a yearly tradition with our post, and yet another reason why Post 278 in Stevensville, Maryland is truly representative of a Legiontown Post. As always our doors are always open to all, come on down and visit!! Commander Nikki
