Heavy duty snow plow truck delivered to Camp American Legion


 

Wausau Post 10 provides over 80% funding for vehicle

On Friday, Dec 20th, Montgomery-Plant-Dudley Post 10 Wausau presented a new RAM 2500 truck with BOSS V-Snowplow to Don Grundy, Director of Camp American Legion.

Wausau Post 10 members passed a motion that permitted the Post to make the largest donation in their 100-year history, approving a donation not to exceed $35,000 for the 3/4 size truck and snowplow.

Working with the Department Adjutant Amber Nikolai, Post 10 funds were placed in the Wisconsin American Legion Foundation, along with a previous donation of $10,000 from the American Legion Department of Wisconsin Legion Riders.

The Acacia Philanthropy Foundation of Wausau and The Robert & Mary Jo Hartwig Foundation also contributed funding for project. Graphics for the vehicle were donated by Flip-Side Graphics of Wausau.

Following a bidding process, the truck was purchased in Wausau from the Brickner Family dealership who provided a significant discount to this Post 10 project. Document signing to procure the vehicle was completed in early December, followed by vehicle prep and snowplow attachment enabling immediate use at the Camp.

The truck replaces a 20+ year old vehicle that was no longer road worthy.  This upgrade in vehicles will allow the Camp to remain open longer, with year-round possibilities. Additionally, the vehicle will be able to be used in local events, promoting the Camp and American Legion in the Northwoods area.  Thanks to Wausau Post 10 Liaison Officer Thom Passow, for his leadership in pursuing the bids, coordinating the financials with the Department, and guidance throughout the procurement process.  Also, thanks to all Post 10 members for their fund raising efforts that enabled the Post to fulfill our obligation of “Veterans Still Helping Veterans”.

Veterans Events at Stanley Correctional Institute

 

On Nov 13, six members of American Legion Wausau Post 10 drove to the Stanley Correctional Institute to attend their Veterans recognition event.  The two hour event featured talented inmates performing readings, solos, group singers, musical instrument performances, as well as videos describing the MIA-POW table and flag folding with its meaning.  We had opportunities to meet numerous individuals, all conducting themselves is a gracious and respectful manner.

Our group met with the Warden and several staff associated with the Veterans projects.  We toured the Veterans living area, receiving updates on job training, a demo of their K9 training program, and more. 

To support the Institutes efforts to encourage Veterans rehab, Post 10 has donated MIA/POW hats, all five service flags, books, and other materials.  They now have their own Honor Guard, performing at their major events.
