I am sad to say that Frank Piatek
passed away. We conducted a service for him on the 24th
of July at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home. Frank was everything
that you would want a Legionnaire to be. Always had a smile on
his face and was ready to help out at any given moment, the last
being at Jefferson Memorial Cemetery during Memorial Day
activities where he participated as part of our Honor Guard and
then volunteered to fire off three volleys from one of the M-1
at the Ceremony at the Veteranís Portion of the Cemetery. He
will be greatly missed. Frank left this world without an
American Flag on his casket because his DD214 could not be
located. Although he was a member of the American Legion, his
service to his country could not be verified. Please make it a
point to have a copy of your DD214 available so your family
knows where it is in case of your untimely death.

Iíll close this
wishing all a safe and fun filled end to this summer. Be
watchful of kids running across streets, people not paying
attention (i.e., texting while driving), and motorcycles.
