The Coast Guard in the Viet Nam war - Tuesday at the American Legion

Sunday, April 30, 2017

American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, May 2, 2017.

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 presentation, after which guests may depart. Members are asked to remain for the continuation of the meeting.

The meeting will feature a speaker with remarkable military and post-military careers.

Stephen Ulmer exhibited outstanding Cadet leadership at the Coast Guard Academy, where he graduated with honors. He was with the first Coast Guard unit to serve in Viet Nam and the first to capture a North Vietnamese steel hull, gun-running ship, for which he earned a Silver Star and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.

He left the Coast Guard to join the ministry, where he became very active in community service. There will be time for questions after Stephen’s talk.

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

Come early so you can check out the Post library that contains many militarily related books, video tapes and DVDs. People in the community may borrow, use and return any of these items at no charge. They are encouraged to stay for the program as well.

Post 227 members look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
