Two posts' mascots; Howie Howitzer (307) and Huey Helicopter (127).


Veterans helping veterans

Cumming, GA

Two Georgia American Legion posts located only 10 miles apart have found much more than mere common ground. Post 307 in Cumming was founded in 1995 but had never had a permanent meeting site. Post 127 in Sugar Hill was founded in 1921, but in 2019 sold their property and built a multi-purpose building on seven acres.
The two post commanders (Kevin Ganns of 307 and Jason Tredway of 127) met with the result that 127 granted 307 no-charge use of their facility for regular monthly meetings. They also provided them with space to display and store its awards and flags, and even to house 307’s iconic 105 mm howitzer and trailer alongside 127’s Vietnam-era Huey Helicopter. Post 307 has thus added new credence to one of the American Legion mantras, “veterans helping veterans.”
