National Commander Dan Dellinger will be at the post Saturday at 11:30 a.m. A program will follow lunch.
Dellinger was elected president of the 2.4-million-member organization last August at the organization’s national convention in Houston.
Dellinger was a U.S. Army infantry officer, was stationed at Fort Benning during the Vietnam War and separated from the U.S. Army Reserve in 1984 with the rank of captain.
The American Legion was founded nationally in 1919 as a veterans’ service organization, and also works to protect the benefits of all veterans, and promote God and country in the community.
Post Commander Raymond Rollins said the event is expected to draw a large crowd, and encouraged all veterans in the community to participate.
The post is at 160 McClure St. in Canton. For information or reservations contact Rollins at (770) 841-5833 or (770) 479-4405.
