COMMUNITY

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.

 

Post 281 provides substantial annual financial assistance to the Glendora Rescue Squad and to the Triton Regional High School Marching Band.

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.

Flag purchase and disposal services are available through Post 281, and our hall is available for rent by members of our community and surrounding areas.

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.
