Colorado Sons of the American Legion recognizes 12-year-old member

Windsor, CO

On November 18, the Detachment of Colorado awarded 12-year-old Teddy Kuntz with the distinguished award of Outstanding Member of the Year. Teddy is a member of Sagebrush Squadron 68 in Brush, Colorado and serves as the Detachment Sergeant-at-Arms. Following the Marshall Fire, which destroyed over 100 homes in the towns of Louisville and Superior, Teddy collected over $12,000 in donations of clothes and other items for children that were misplaced because of the fire. Teddy also raised enough funds to purchase 149 A.L.F. Dogs that were distributed to homeless children in northern Colorado by Brown Bag Ministries, a nonprofit homeless advocacy organization sponsored by ALA Unit 22 in Northglenn. Some of the dogs were distributed to junior enlisted military families at a baby shower sponsored by ALA Unit 209 in Colorado Springs.
