Sargent American Legion Post #104

Category: Clubs
The Sargent Legion is still a viable organization, although our monthly meetings and smokers have become sparse.  Most of our members are World War II veterans, a few Korean and a few Vietnam veterans.  We have 58 paid up members, 34 of whom live in the Sargent area, Of these 34 veterans, 26 are World War II and Korean veterans, putting their ages in the 80’s.

As they look to the future, the groups membership really beginning to decline because of the ages of the veterans.  They have no young men and women from the Sargent area serving in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan at this time but they are hoping young veterans will soon join.

The Legion Post still sponsors Boy’s State and Junior Law Cadet programs.  They help at military funerals, Veteran’s Day programs, and flying the flags at the cemetery on Memorial Day.  They also help with the color guards marching in parades in the surrounding area towns. The Legion Post 104 officers for 2008 are Daniel Sasek –Commander and Adjutant, and Tom Kleeb – Finance Officer.
