Screaming Eagles
The American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, May 1, 2018. A meet and greet starts at 6:30pm and the program starts at 7:00pm.

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

Kenneth Potts will speak about his experiences in Vietnam as a member of the "Screaming Eagles."
As a young man from Auburn, Indiana, Potts fulfilled a boyhood dream by joining the US 101st Airborne Division, nicknamed the "Screaming Eagles."

He reenlisted early at Ft. Campbell Kentucky and volunteered to join the 1st Battalion 327th Infantry Regiment, which was part of the 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade fighting in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam.

He will tell of his experiences during three straight tours in Vietnam from 1966 to 1969. He went on to serve 21 years in the Army including 12 years service with NATO in Germany. He recently retired after 24 years as a King County Corrections Officer. There will be an opportunity for questions after the presentation.

After Kenneth finishes his talk, there will be a refreshment break, followed by a business meeting of the post.

The main order of business will be to elect officers to lead the post for the coming year. It is important that as many post members as possible should attend this meeting to elect and show your support for these new officers.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the 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 and community without charge.

We hope to see you at the meeting.
