American Legion Auxiliary reflects on its past

Courtesy photoThe American Legion Auxiliary sponsored four local teens — Juliette Beals, Madelyn Streng, Tatum Davis and Olivia Perrier — as delegates to the 2019 Girls State event. 

Looking back at the past can be helpful if one wants to grab a few lessons learned, or perhaps gain a proper perspective of things that occurred, or even to better appreciate a valuable experience. With that in mind, as our Unit 28 American Legion Auxiliary in Grand Haven begins 2020, I would like to do a quick look back.

Nov. 10, 2019, was the 100-year anniversary of the creation of our national organization, with a motto of “Service, Not Self!" Just to put that into perspective and remind us of the historical aspect, Woodrow Wilson was our president at the time and World War I had just ended.
