Members and friends of American Legion Post 71 celebrated the parent organization’s centennial March 22 at the local unit’s anniversary celebration (marking 87 years at the local level). Accolades went to longtime Post 71 leaders Ron Price and Ralph Wainright, after Price helped save Wainright’s life following repeated cardiac arrests during a Dec. 15, 2018 event honoring deceased veterans; and to World War II veteran J.H. Wilson, who, at age 99, is a few months younger than the American Legion itself.
