According to the American Legion, when a comrade passes the moment is one of honor. The memory of his/her life in the service of country has now been enrolled in the great spirit army, whose footfalls cause no sound, but in the memory of mankind, their souls go on marching, sustained by the pride of service in time of war.
The American Legion, Department of Florida is proud to remember and honor our fellow members of the Legion Family who have passed away and transferred to “Post Everlasting”. May they rest in peace and forever are remembered on these pages and by their comrades.
