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...

Choose The Perfect Bracelet Stack According To Your Personality!

Bracelets are an excellent way to make a statement about who you are and what you stand for. They can make a simple outfit go from drab to fabulous or help create an authentic style from the ground up. Metal bracelets look more expensive than their faux counterparts but also come at a higher price. If you're on a budget, bezel-set stones like turquoise or labradorite will give you an equally chic look without draining your bank account. Here are some tips to help you choose the right stack for your aesthetic. Choose your style: Do you prefer wearing bracelet stacks on your wrist or around the neck? If you opt for the latter, get a length that fits snugly, not too tight and loose. You also want your piece to lay flush over your skin without leaving any noticeable gaps or open links swinging around. Finally, pay attention to... Read more →


NJ American Water Announces $2.5 Million Upgrade to Delaware River Treatment Plant

CAMDEN CITY, N.J. – December 5, 2022 – Today, New Jersey American Water celebrated its recent $2.5 million investment in the Delaware River Regional Water Treatment Plant. Treatment process upgrades, including the installation of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) to properly treat 1,4-dioxane, a soon-to-be regulated compound found in the source water. In February 2020, routine New Jersey American Water testing in the Delaware River led to the discovery of 1,4-dioxane, an unregulated synthetic chemical. While 1,4-dioxane is unlikely to pose an acute health risk in the detected amount, it was not previously found in the river. The discovery prompted New Jersey American Water, in consultation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the Delaware River Basin Commission, and other agencies, to conduct additional sampling to determine potential compound sources and inform an appropriate response. New Jersey American Water also initiated a treatment design plan for the Delaware River... Read more →
