I had the pleasure this week of presenting an official Massachusetts State Citation to Peter S. Tibbets. Peter, a Coast Guard veteran, was Adjutant of Capt. Lester S. Wass American Legion Post 3 for the past 15 years.
Peter has been in the American Legion, the oldest veteran’s organization in the United States - established 101 years ago, for more than a third of that! His service to our nation, our community, and to the officers and members of Post 3 is very much appreciated. Peter and the men and women connected to Post 3 have been instrumental in providing resources; including free meals, meeting space, and other generous acts of kindness to many. I thank the members and Post Commander Mark Nestor for providing this formal opportunity to express our thanks to Peter.
