Over a lifetime some years are better than others, and sometimes a particular year is especially bad. 1969 was one of those bad years for me, as my childhood friend and fellow Marine Lee Roy Herron was killed in Vietnam, and I almost died after a three story fall. But three decades later I learned that Herron had died a hero, receiving the Navy Cross posthumously. Since learning the actual circumstances of his death, I have been on a mission to preserve Lee Roy's memory, heroism, and legacy. In so doing, perhaps I have made 1969 a better year for his family--and me.

NVC Michael Cotten's recent visit to New Hampshire
The George P. Vanderveer Post #129 of Toms River, NJ was advised of the need for new classroom flags for the Lakehurst Elementary School, and quickly provided them. After mold was discovered at the elementary school, the building was closed and the students relocated. Months later the school re-opened, minus classroom flags. Once the Legion heard that the students were saluting small desk flags, they quickly responded with brand new large classroom flags for each room.
