Plaque honors past commanders of Motley American Legion

At their regular monthly meeting in May, the members of the Motley American Legion Tri-County Post 124 presented a plaque  honoring their past post commanders.

The Motley American Legion Post 124 was chartered in 1919; and has been going strong since that time.

“If you are currently serving in the military or have served in our armed forces, we urge you to consider joining the Motley American Legion,” said legion member Alan Marshall. He went on to note that the group meets on the third Thursday of each month at Motley City Hall at 6:45 p.m.

“Our sincere thanks go to Kathy Binder of Winners Trophy and Engraving in Brainerd for a fantastic job of engraving,” Marshall said.

According to their mission statement, “In the spirit of service, not self, the mission of the American Legion is to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military and their families, both at home and abroad.”

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organizaion devoted to mutual helpfulness.
