Wausau Post 10 provides majority funding for plow truck
at Camp American Legion
Wausau Montgomery-Plant-Dudley Post 10 members passed a motion that permitted the Post to make their largest donation in their 100 year history, approving a donation not to exceed $35,000 for a 3/4 size truck with snow plow for Camp American Legion. Working with the Department Adjutant Amber Nikolai funds were placed in the Wisconsin American Legion Foundation, along with $10,000 from the American Legion Department of Wisconsin Legion Riders. Three competitive bids were received for this vehicle. 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 on December 2nd, with delivery of the vehicle slotted to occur in less than two weeks. Decals of the Camp along with Post 10 will be completed before delivery. The truck replaces a 20+ year old vehicle that was no longer road worth. 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 in the Northwoods area. Thanks to Wausau Post 10 Thom Passow, Liaison Officer, for his leadership in pursuing the bids, coordinating the financials with the Department, and guidance. 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.
