Chuck Weinberg’s Memorial

During these trying times amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we as veterans still have a duty that we committed to upon our oath, when we entered the U.S. Military.

Commitment comes in strange ways. Serving in battle brings a brotherhood together that the normal world has no conscious or concept of. A family bound by commitment to each other is at times, stronger than biological families.

No matter what job you were assigned to during your service to your country, your love and respect of those who served with you can never be diminished from your memory.

Through The American Legion we have created a family, whether it be Legionnaires, Auxiliary, Sons of The American Legion, or American Legion Riders. Our main purpose is dedicating ourselves to serving our veterans and their families.

On April 25, 2020 my wife Dianne and I had the opportunity to participate and observe a most touching sight through The American Legion family.

Port Charlotte Post 110 put out the call to the Legion Family, which was answered by almost 100 members of the 13th District Legion family. Those attending received an American flag with a small name tag with your name on it to be place at Chuck Weinberg’s, significant other, June Harbor’s house.

We left Port Charlotte Post 110 with the Riders leading the way, followed by cars and trucks. Upon arrival at June’s house each person would exit their vehicle and place the flag in her lawn in memory of Chuck Weinberg. You could see the joy in June’s eyes and she will always cherish that memory.

We are The American Legion Family. As Country music star, Michael Peterson’s song about The American Legion says, “It’s not just something we do, it’s who we are”.
