The American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, January 9, 2018. A meet and greet starts at 6:30 pm and the program starts at 7:00 pm.

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

The featured speaker will be Michael G. Reagan, a Marine veteran of the Vietnam war. This talented artist has created more than 5,000 portraits of veterans as part of his “Fallen Heroes Portrait Project.”

Many of his drawings have become valuable fund raisers at charity auctions nationwide. His many awards include the American Legion Patriot Award, the VFW Award and the Civilian Medal of Honor which he received at Arlington National Cemetery.

Only one Civilian Medal of Honor is given nationally each year and is for people who place Civilian Service before Self. Earlier, he was the artist for the Washington Huskies and for the Seattle Seahawks.

While the full impact of his work cannot be presented in the allotted time, all veterans and interested members of the community are welcome to come to hear him present a snippet of his work.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the new Post Library that includes a large collection of militarily related books, videotapes 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. Post 227 members are urged to stay for the post meeting that will follow the intermission.
