Names should be submitted in writing (for proper spelling) along with proof of service to the American Legion Post at 148 Main Street in the Village of Whitehall. Attn: Adjutant James Lafayette.

The American Legion does not charge to honor veterans but there is a significant cost to a project like this and donations will be gratefully accepted. A gift of $25 per name would be appropriate.
