Screaming Eagles
The American Legion Post 227 will hold a meeting on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. A meet and greet starts at 6:30pm and the program starts at 7:00pm.

The meeting will be held at the Post 227 building at 14521 17th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.

The featured speaker will be Miguel Valiente who, as a young man from Columbia, joined the US 101st Airborne Division, also known as the Screaming Eagles.

He was transferred to an Engineering Battalion that laid out and set up fire bases on many hilltops below the DMZ in the northern part of South Vietnam. He will tell of his experiences in 1970-71 that earned him a bronze star among other citations.

All veterans and interested members of the community are welcome to come to hear him speak.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the new Post Library that includes a large collection of militarily related books, video tapes and DVDs. 

Any of these can be checked out, used and returned by post members without charge.

A brief intermission for refreshments after the talk will allow visitors to depart. Members of Post 227 are urged to stay for the post meeting that will follow the intermission.
