Post 178


To the Editor:

    Calling all veterans – especially Vietnam veterans!

    Garrett American Legion Post 178 is having an Open House at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16. The topic of this Open House is “Agent Orange,” the illnesses associated with it, and the people who should be or should have been covered.

    Post 178 opens at 3 p.m. on Monday at 515 W. Fifth Ave. (the south end of town) in Garrett, Ind.

    If you are a Vietnam veteran or your family member was a Vietnam veteran, please make time to attend. We plan to begin at 6 p.m. sharp.           After a short presentation, there will be time for questions. There will be food available for purchase beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m.

    Please inform all veterans you know and invite them to be there. Admission is free and you do not have to be a member of Legion Post 178 to attend.

    Since it is an Open House, attendees will be able to purchase adult beverages. This is on a Monday night and we have our weekly drawing at 8 p.m., so get there early if you can for good seats. Remember – this is a free presentation!

    Post 178 is a non-smoking post, but there is a covered smoking area on our deck.
