Veteran of South Vietnamese Army to speak at American Legion Tuesday

Sunday, January 1, 2017

The American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, January 3, 2017. The meeting will include the added bonus of a captivating speaker.

Ben Tran, a South Viet Nam Army (ARVN) Helicopter pilot, will speak about his active duty throughout the Viet Nam war. He will discuss how he survived the war while advancing from the rank of soldier to warrant officer to major.

His talk about his war experiences and more harrowing experiences after the war will keep you on the edge of your seat. There will be time for questions at the end.

The meeting will be held at Post 227, located at 14521 17th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155, at the corner of NE 146th St and 17th Ave NE. All military veterans and guests are welcome to attend.

A social meet and greet time is held from 6:30pm to 7:00pm. The meeting starts at 7:00pm sharp and refreshments will be served after the meeting. Come early so you can check out the Post library that contains many military related books, video tapes and DVDs.

People in the community can borrow, use and return any of these items at no charge and are encouraged to stay for the program as well.

Post 227 members look forward to seeing you on January 3.
