Memorial Day 2018
Monday, May 28
This morning it was confirmed that the start time IS 10:00am at Wesley Chapel Cemetery.
It is a change from what has been customary, however Hilliard VFW is this years host and MC of the event and due to other commitments they decided to move up the time.
This is a collaborative effort between the American Legion and the VFW. Many of you are Dual members, and it is imperative that we work together wherever possible. This is just such an occasion.

Turn right on Veterans Memorial Dr and wind through to the Community Center.

 

The tradition of wearing a poppy dates back to 1920, when it became the memorial flower of The American Legion Family.

The red poppy came to symbolize the blood shed by those who fought and those who continue to fight for our country following World War I. It was popularized by the publication of the wartime poem In Flanders Fields. Written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, M.D. while serving on the front lines in World War I, the poem honors soldiers killed in battle.

The American Legion led the charge of having Congress designate the Friday before Memorial Day as National Poppy Day®, a tradition found in many countries around the world. National Poppy Day® encourages all Americans to wear a red poppy to honor the fallen and support the living heroes who have worn our nation’s uniform.

On May 25, join us by wearing a red poppy to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and support the future of veterans and their families for generations to come.

Learn more about National Poppy Day and ways you can participate today!

Sincerely,

The American Legion

What is your experience with the National Flood Insurance Program?

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is broken.  The program’s flawed design gives all taxpayers and many flood insurance policyholders a raw deal. 

According to the National Resources Defense Council, there are tens of thousands of properties in the program that have flooded multiple times - including one home that has flooded 40 times and has received over $400,000 in flood insurance payments. This kind of wasteful spending is unacceptable and unfair.  But until we make needed reforms to the program, lower-risk policyholders will continue to pay higher premiums than they should to cross-subsidize these properties while taxpayers foot the bill of an actuarially unsound program.

With the Flood Insurance Program facing a debt of $25 billion to Treasury, all of us are stakeholders in the program’s future.  So whether you own a flood insurance policy or not, I want to know what you think about the Flood Insurance Program and its pending reauthorization.  I invite you to Click here to take my survey.

Taxpayers should not be paying to keep a government programs like these afloat. It is my hope we can incorporate private sector participation to bring in choice, competition, and to take some of the burden off of tax payers.
