The website, Eblast, and Newsletter team does our best to share all of our events with you. But the addition of a professional photographer to our team has taken our game to a new level.

DOWNLOAD THE FLYER TO ATTEND

The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Atlanta and the Georgia Department of Veterans Service are partnering to say “Thank You” to Korean War Veterans for their honorable military service and personal sacrifice by hosting a special medal and certificate ceremony. This event will involve the presentation of the Republic of Korea’s Ambassador for Peace Medal and Georgia’s Korean War Veteran Certificate of Honor. Every Georgia veteran with honorable service during the Korean War (June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953) is eligible to receive this certificate and peace medal lapel pin (This includes veterans with service in-country and those who were stationed elsewhere in other capacities).  It is also available for veterans who participated in the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations through the end of 1955. The Ambassador for Peace Medal began to be presented to veterans as a special memento for those American veterans who returned to Republic of Korea through the “Revisit Program.” The honor was expanded to veterans who have been unable to participate.  The State’s Certificate of Honor is personalized with the Korean War veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, and dates of service printed over the Seal of the State of Georgia and includes the official Korean War logo. These certificates are signed by Governor Brian Kemp and GDVS Commissioner Mike Roby.

DEADLINE TO SIGN UP: Friday, October 11, 2019

The trip will be Thursday September 19th – we will leave the post promptly at 9AM and depart from Murphy around 4:30 pm.   This is not a legion sponsored event, but an event put together by Milton Dickson.  We plan on having two vans that will hold 15 people each.   The cost of the trip will be approximately $20 per person to cover gas, and insurance.  No smoking on the buses, but we will make stops on the road. Each participant will be given $20 in slot machine credits to play on the machines.  It will be based on first come, first served.

Cemetery Cleanup

Post 29 has adopted the Shiloh Cemetery. Shiloh Cemetery is located near the intersection of Dallas Highway and Barrett Parkway. Shiloh is home to many veterans graves, many are quite old.

Our volunteer crew, founded by Past Commander Bill Beaudin and now organized by Jeff Garland, does a great job keeping the graves of our fallen comrades in honorable condition.

The next cleanup will be Saturday August 31st beginning at 8AM. The crew picks up trash, mows the grass, and pulls weeds. Please join us and bring a rake, shovel, mower, or other lawn tools. RSVP to Jeff Garland at Jeff.Garland @ amerisbank.com
