American Legion Post 108, Franklin, NC


Honor Guard Activities

01 July 2021 - The Honor Guard had its weekly breakfast yesterday at the Sunset Restaurant. It gives the team a chance to socialize outside the call of duty. Members pictured from front left and back around are: Dick Sheehan (Honor Guard Captain), Bushy Hartman, Mike Hartman (Post Commander), Bud Haire (Post Chaplain), Tom McCollum (Past Post Commander), and Tom Wanson. Great comradery was had by all.
***Look for the Honor Guard to lead the Franklin Independence Day parade, 3 July, from Town Hall to the gazebo around 6:00PM.***
BTW - The Honor Guard serves ALL veterans, not just members of The American Legion. They could always use some more help. If you'd like to join, leave a message.
