Homeless Vets Donation

Post 272 Donates $1,000 to Benefit Area Homeless Vets

LINGLESTOWN, PA, January 11, 2013-  American Legion Post 272, one of several active veteran organizations in Central Pennsylvania, is giving back to the community with its recent $1,000.00, donation to the Lebanon VA for its homeless veterans program.

One of the primary goals of The American Legion, the nation’s largest and most influential network of U.S. Wartime Veterans, is to take care of ALL Veterans.  The Post 272 donation was specifically designated for homeless veterans because of members’ concerns that their numbers are unfortunately increasing, as government aid is tightening up.        

Mr. Doug Etter, Lebanon VA Public Affairs Specialist (center) accepted the donation (L-R) from Alan Gallagher, Adjutant and Marshall Eward, Post 272 Commander.

Commander Eward in presenting the check to Etter said that he was pleased to be able to present the check on behalf of Post 272, but was sadden that there were so many fellow vets in need.  Gallagher added that we hoped other Posts would follow our lead and put Homeless Vets in the forefront of their charitable activities.

Etter thanked the Post for its thoughtful donation and pledged to put it to good use helping homeless veterans.  He added that while the number of actual homeless veterans is near impossible to come by, the VA estimates that on any given night over 100,000 vets are homeless.
