American Legion officials said it is an honor to host the current national commander and all veterans in the Warren County area are welcome to attend either, or both, events.

“Commander Seehafer is a great representative of the organization and is hugely supportive of the American Legion’s mission of serving veterans and their families,” they said.

Officials said those planning to attend may help meal-planning efforts by calling ahead to Post 3 point-of-contact Julia Baker at 601-868-3333 and providing a number of attendees as soon as possible.
