Guest Opinion: DECEMBER 7, A DAY OF BRAVERY

From the desk of Vincent J. Troiola, American Legion National Commander December 7 is often remembered as a day of infamy. I prefer to think of it as a day of bravery. Sixteen Medals of Honor were later awarded for actions taken in and around the Hawaiian Islands that day. Fifty-one Navy Crosses, 53 Silver Stars, four Navy and Marine Corps Medals, four Distinguished Service Crosses, a Distinguished Flying Cross and three Bronze Stars were also awarded to Americans for their actions during the attack. Countless other heroic acts occurred without the valor officially recognized. The captain of the USS Arizona, Franklin Van Valkenburgh, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantly defending his ship until he was killed by a direct bomb hit. In 2017 his grandson, Charles Van Valkenburgh, told The American Legion, “Stay vigilant because it only takes moments for an aggressor to change the world... Read more →

Wreaths Across America Day

UVALDE, TV and ALTON, IL — December 6, 2022—In 1992 one American family had the idea to go to Arlington National Cemetery and honor the men and women who served this country with traditional veterans wreaths. This was a kind, quiet gesture that continued until 2005 when a reporter released a photo of graves covered in snow with fresh balsam veterans wreaths honoring every stone in sight. This gesture sparked a movement that became known as Wreaths Across America Day (December 17th this year.) Since that time, thousands of volunteer groups diligently work to honor interred veterans in their community. However, understandably, one community in Uvalde, TX has other priorities this year. “Last year, we were able to get all graves covered (at Hillcrest Cemetery),” said Melissa Federspill of the Uvalde Leader News. “This year, with the school shooting, there was too much going on to try to push for...
