American Legion supports Veterans Plaza
American Legion Post 558 fully supports the renaming of Community Plaza to honor the men and women who have served our country honorably in response to direction from our commander-in-chief, the president.
Those who have served know well that the use of military power is a last resort to protect our interests after all other instruments of national power, such as political and economic measures, have failed. Veterans know, more than anyone, the lasting physical and emotional impacts of serving in wartime and do not relish this experience nor wish anyone else experiences it. Despite this, our veterans were always ready, when they were in uniform, to respond without question, to direction from the president, often at the possible cost of their lives.
