Cold War veteran to speak at the American Legion Post 227 meeting

Friday, August 23, 2019

The American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, September 3, 2019. A meet and greet starts at 6:30pm and the program starts at 7:00pm. Both veterans and the public at large are invited and welcome to attend.

The meeting will be held at Post 227, located at 14521 17th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155  [Behind Goodwill @ NE 145th St and 15th Ave NE]

Our guest speaker, Anthony (Tony) Ascanio, will talk about his service in the USAF in the Strategic Air Command under the notorious General Curtis LeMay. He worked on electrical systems of the B-47 bomber and later on the phase-in of the Boeing-built B-52 bomber. His service, from 1955 to 1959, came at a critical time in Cold War relations. There will be the opportunity for questions after the presentation.

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. We hope to see you at the meeting.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the Post Library that includes a large collection of military related books, video tapes and DVDs. Any of these can be checked out, used and returned by post members and community without charge.
