Legion to take over Veteran’s Project


One of the many projects that were coordinated by the Mobilize Montgomery office was the Montgomery Veteran’s Project that displays veterans’ photographs and stories on business storefronts and at the Montgomery Veteran’s Memorial Park.
To promote patriotism and to honor those who have served our country through military service, the Montgomery American Legion Post 79 has taken on the project. 
In order to defray the cost of producing the memorials that includes printing, cost of frames and the cost of display cases, a $25 donation is suggested. Checks should be made out the American Legion Post 79 MVP (Montgomery Veteran's Project).   When you make a donation to this project, you will also receive a copy of the memorial.
Ed Keogh, one of the project’s organizers, said they will try to display families together as best  they can.  He also noted that families should make a note on the order form as to where they would like to have their memorial displayed.
All pictures up to 8x11 in size that are submitted will be returned as soon as they are scanned into a computer and adjusted to fit in the memorial’s size.
Keogh added if people  need assistance with the form’s information they can contact him at home at 507-346-5685 or on his cell phone at 952-334-2128.
“I am willing to meet with anyone to assist them with their memorial,” he said.
Montgomery Veteran’s Memorial forms and pictures can be dropped off at American Legion Post 79 or contact the co-chairs Keogh or James Slavik.
