National Military Appreciation Month 

 

Fellow Patriots;
In 1999, the US Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to "publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our veterans and active service members." May was selected because it has most days set aside for celebrating and commemorating our military's achievements. These days include Loyalty Day, Victory in Europe (VE) Day commemorating the end of WWII in Europe, Armed Forces Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, and of course, Memorial Day.
Memorial Day, is the only federal holiday in May and is celebrated on the last Monday of the month. The day, dating from the Civil War era, traditionally has marked recognition of those who have died in service to the nation. Each year on Memorial Day, the nation observes one minute of silence at 3 p.m. (local time) to honor the military's fallen comrades and to pay tribute to the sacrifices by the nation's service members and veterans.
For those of us who have served and sacrificed and have received the Purple Heart medal for wounds received on the battlefield, we too pause to thank those brothers and sisters who served beside us and, in many cases, had our backs or saved our lives.

Flags along Main Street in Eden 

The flags along Main Street and East Eden Rd., need to be replaced. Volunteers of Post 880 for the past 10 years have installed and taken down these flags. Financially we maintain the flags, poles, brackets by replacing ones deemed unserviceable. 

They have reached their present state of Tribute, Memory and Love. They are faded, worn and tattered. 

In all, 150 flags, polls and brackets need to be replaced. We are asking the Businesses of the Eden and East Eden, Community Organizations and Residents to donate to this major project. The estimated cost for replacements is $50 per flag, pole (6 ft.) and bracket. To do a complete replacement we would need 150 good quality sets. The cost would be $7500. A community effort to this project is needed in not only the purchasing of the sets but installation of brackets.

 

Donations can be sent to

Eden American Legion Post 880

Eden, NY 14057. 

Please mark flag donation. 

It would be nice to have this project completed before Memorial Day 2015.
