Community Resources and Services
American Legion Post 281 believes in providing strong support for our community. To this end we participate, both as a Post and as individuals, in Gloucester Twp. programs and services.
Post 281 members took part in the introduction ceremonies for a new book on the long and distinguished history of Gloucester Twp.
We participate in the Adopt-a-Road program, and work with our public school system to provide a quality education to our township's children.
|During the Triton Regional High School Athletic Hall
of Fame banquet, Past Commander James Barrett presented
a new POW/MIA flag to Triton Principal Edward J. Stahl
on behalf of Post 281. A cash donation was also presented
to help maintain the school's Vietnam Veteran's Memorial.
One new section — to be updated on a regular basis — is Living History: the stories of post members and area residents who served during wartime. This is intended to preserve their personal histories and to make them available to schools and to the community. Past stories will be archived and available on the Post 281 site, and may be forwarded to the Library of Congress with the approval of the person(s) involved. From time to time, we may also include first person narratives about civilian life during WWII and civilian service for the military (Red Cross, USO, Army Special Services, etc.) during periods of conflict.
