Jessica Wang Hey everyone we need your help to celebrate and honor an incredible man, Mr. Charlie Cornelius. He is a WWII vet, one of the last few still alive today and this Sunday Charlie turns 93yrs old and it just so happens to be Memorial Day weekend. He is on hospice so this is likely his last birthday-memorial day on earth and his family has asked that we help make this the most spectacular Birthday/Memorial Day possible. So if you are available Sunday from 2-3pm please join us for a Birthday-Memorial Day Parade as we celebrate Charlie’s 93rd birthday and honor his faithful service to our country. 5211 Ermine St SE Albany OR 97321. We invite you all to drive by, honk, wave, fly a flag, play an instrument, make a sign, etc. You’re invited to mail or drop off cards but ask that you PLEASE wear a mask/gloves and social distance to protect Charlie and his family. Let’s make this the most spectacular day ever for Charlie!
I was wondering if there is a group who sew/make blankets? I have a ton of uniforms that I would love made into a throw memory blanket. The extras I would like to donate for other projects. Thank you! 🇺🇸
Congratulations on your great work at the Lebanon Veterans Home, great example for all other Posts to follow. Bob Berweger, 1st Vice Commander, American Legion Post 21.

The loneliest of D-Day remembrances is hit by pandemic Saturday's D-Day remembrance in Normandy have turned out to be one of the loneliest remembrances ever.


During the bloody fighting of the Civil War, Captain Robert Ellicombe led his Union troops against the Confederates at Harrison’s landing in Virginia. During combat one night, he heard the groan of a wounded soldier, not knowing if the victim was Union or Confederate, he crawled onto the darkened battlefield to find him. Gunfire whistled over his head. Even so, the Captain felt a compelling urgency to go. In the confusion, he located the man and pulled him to the safety of Union lines. Only then did he realize that the man, a Confederate, had died in his arms. Moments later, in the flickering glow of a lantern, he stared in shocked unbelief. The dead soldier was his son.

Before the War, the boy had gone south to study music, and getting caught there, lost all contact with his family. Without his father’s knowledge, the youth joined the Confederacy. Later, in that strange providence of God, the political violence and hatred that gutted the nation had been set aside. Father and son were re-united on the field of the boy’s death. When the dad risked his life, crawling across a death-zone to the aid of an unknown soldier, in his final moments, the young Confederate knew it was his father’s arms that held him.

The next morning, the heart-stricken father requested permission for a full, Military Funeral. The request was denied. In a compromise agreement, he was allowed to use a single musician. He chose a bugler. Giving the musician a scrap of paper containing a few music-notes he found in his son’s pocket, the bugler played the somber chords at the grave. As a father grieved for his lost son, the world heard for the first time the haunting-but beloved-melody since played at thousands of Military Funerals and which today we call “TAPS”

[05/22/20]   Ladies and Gentlemen and Veterans of all ages, PLEASE FLY YOUR FLAGS AT HALF MAST ON MEMORIAL DAY. In addition we would love to see the 5000 flags flying throughout Linn County again. Many of you have already said you will light those RED, WHITE and Blue candles on your porches at Dusk on Memorial Day to remember those who lost their lives on the battle front. Memorial Day is a Day of remembrance.


David Solomon
Commander Post 10

[05/19/20]   Memorial Day, for most of us, will be different this year. The meaning, however, does not change.
I’m calling on the community and The American Legion Family to encourage communities far and wide to pay tribute to our nation’s fallen heroes at dusk May 25, Memorial Day, by lighting candles of honor and placing them on front porches. Such a display will remind everyone that our resolve to honor those who served before us will continue even as social-distancing measures limit our ability to perform traditional Memorial Day remembrances.
We must adapt and overcome the pandemic in order to pay our respects to the true meaning of Memorial Day.
The manner and placement of the candles of honor are up to each individual. If possible, I recommend using a front porch as a visible reminder of the price that was paid for freedom.
Color options for consideration could include:
A red candle to remember the blood shed in battle for the protection of our freedoms.
A white candle to keep our POWs/MIAs ever in our thoughts and prayers as we await their return home
A blue candle to salute the memories of those who made it home but are no longer with us.
However you choose, whether it’s one candle or three, I ask that photos of those candles be shared on social media, tagging The American Legion National Headquarters and using the hashtag #candlesofhonor so our message will reach families everywhere.
And let’s not forget that Friday is National Poppy Day. While our poppy distribution plans may be different this year, it’s also an opportunity to innovate. The American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters is planning a Facebook watch party May 22 at noon EDT. American Legion Family members across the country are also planning other low-contact ways to remember the fallen and keep faith with the disabled through the symbol of our official flower, the red poppy.
No matter how we remember this year, the most important message we need to send is that we will never forget.
