So . . can I talk with someone in the Post about ordering these items on line or from a catalog? Here are some fellow Legionnaires who will be happy to help you:
· Legionnaire Bob Wyman, 703-298-2686
· Legionnaire Brenda Bess, 703-754-1024
· Chaplain Jim Wright, 703-743-1108
The bottom line is . . . participate with your fellow Legionnaires in . . . khaki pants, blue polo shirt, and a cover. We look pretty good at parade time, casual but we present a uniformed appearance. The annual Haymarket Day Parade is in September and the Manassas Veterans Day Parade is in November. Our general membership meetings at the Haymarket Library are also uniform events.
