“Passing the future along is something that’s so important to me,” Riley said. “We all need to make sure this generation isn’t forgotten. If we don’t work at keeping our liberties, we will for certain lose them.”
Post Chaplain Chuck Katlic said the dedication was a “special day for the legion.” He asked God to continue to “allow the post and the legion to continue to prosper.”
After the ribbon cutting, a dedication for the new flagpole was held. A U.S. flag that flew over the former location was raised to fly one last time and then lowered and retired before a new flag was raised to fly over the venue.
