The Commander of the Captain Lester S. Wass, American Legion Post No. 3 in Gloucester, Mark L. Nestor, announced that his post has established the Hurricane Harvey Legionnaires Assistance Fund to help their fellow American Legionnaires in Houston, Texas, whose lives have been impacted by the storm.
Commander Nestor in his statement said “Our hearts and sympathy reach out to them and it cries for our support. One segment of the population of Houston immediately comes to mind, namely, my fellow Legionnaires that have been terribly affected by this unwarranted catastrophe. These are men and women who, when called upon, donned a uniform and swore to protect and defend this country. Many of these same men and women, throughout the years, without hesitation, have placed themselves in harm’s way, often at great personal cost, and rise up and defend this nation against all odds. Many have lost everything, their homes, their possessions and their livelihood, and many have no insurance or the financial means to recover or replace.”
The Commander invites your support for the victims and affirms that 100% of the donations provided will go to assist those Houston Legionnaires who are in need.
Please send a check, for any amount, to “Capt. Lester S. Wass, American Legion Post No. 3, P.O. Box 133, Gloucester, MA 01931-0122", and annotate on the check “Legionnaires Assistance Fund”.
