As part of the Preamble of The American Legion’s Constitution states: “For God and Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: . . . To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation. . .” In keeping with that purpose, Matson-Miller Post 330 of The American Legion in Wilson, recently donated $2,500.00 to the Village of Wilson for the purpose of making improvements to the Community’s local baseball field and park area within the Village’s limits.
Village Mayor Dennis Cowan accepted the check for the Village. The Post also contributed $1,000.00 to Camp American Legion in Lake Tomahawk, WI. Camp American Legion is a resort where any Wisconsin veteran or active duty service member with a physician documented, physical or psychological illness, injury or disability, active duty military recently (within the last 9 months) returned from a deployment and any surviving family-of-a-fallen who has recently (over the past year) lost a service member can stay for up to one week, absolutely free. Even the meals are free. To learn more about Matson-Miller Post 330, and/or Camp American Legion, contact John Miller, Post Service Officer at (715) 772-3389.
