AMERICAN LEGION I 1I
HORACE F. CRENPO POST NO. 85
FORMED IN ALGIERS AND
NOW OPEN FOR APPLI
CATIONS FOR MEM- T
The Ex-Service Men of this Dis- e
trict following the custom of other a
sections, have organized a Post of d
the American Legion and in honor of
a local boy, killed in combat, the b
Post has been named Horace F. p
Creepo Post No. 85. a
The American Legion, and its V
purposes have not been thoroughly P
understood, but due to the activity b
of a number of Ex-Service Men and a
the need of preserving intact the rec
ords and comradeship of the men "
who served over there, the Legion t
is now making rapid progress in its f
efforts to accomplish this purpose.
We have in tit District upwards of r
250 men who served in the late c
war, and the promoters of the Le- I
gion are assured of a large pereen
tage joining the Legion at its next
meeting which will be held at the
Avenue Theatre on Thursday even
ing, March 3rd, 1921. The Knights I
of Columbus, always Interested in t
the American Soldier, have taken I
active interest in the organization I
of a local Post and the Knights of I
Columbus Band will be on hand to I
lend its assistance. There can be I
no doubt of the necessity of the or- i
ganization of the Ex-Soldier in his i
own interest, which means higher
American, Citizenship and the aim- I
plificatien of the Government's i
Program for his welfare,
All Ex-Serviee men of the late
War, whether Army or Navy, are
cordially Invited to be present at
a meeting of the above Post, when
prominent speakers from the State
Department will explain in full the
objects and purposes of the Legion. I
