From the Commander

It’s official. Fort Drum (AUSA) has assigned the soldiers from the 10th Mountain (Combat Aviation Brigade), 3-10 GSAB to our Lowville American Legion Family! Currently they are downrange again in Afghanistan. This unit adopted Lowville and became part of our Lowville Legion Family three years ago. Our bond continues to grow. They are always here when our community needs them. From supporting the Cream Cheese Festival with, 62 volunteers, to cleaning out the perimeter for the new Lowville Food Pantry. In addition they hang and take down the American Flags on our village streets as well as assist the Lewis County Historical Society, your Legion and more. We are both humbled and honored to have them as members of our Family. Hooah!

The Lowville American Legion Family with the Marine Corp League (and Greg Stanton from the VFW) render military honors to countless deceased veterans yearly. This year we have provided full military honors to over 30 deceased Veterans as well as provided full military honors at numerous events. I and our Chaplain also visit Veterans in Hospice. Interested in joining our team? We provide the uniforms, the families provide the heartfelt gratitude.

Join us on November 11th to celebrate Veterans Day. We will provide the adult beverages to all Veterans, all day. We are asking our local restaurants and individuals to provide the food. Door opens at 1100 hours.

Our Department visitation was a huge success our Sons Commander Terry Peters and Richard Houppert did a phenomenal job in preparing dinner.
