We are proud to be the first Post in Massachusetts to build a memorial honoring the men and women who served in all the conflicts from Grenada to Afghanistan, and that this center element was dedicated to Duxbury’s first KIA in the war on terrorism in Afghanistan – Lt. Timothy Steele.
The ceremony unveiling the new War on Terrorism Monument will be held on Veteran’s Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012. The ceremony will start promptly at 11 a.m. and will conclude at 12 noon with a reception honoring all our veterans.
This memorial was made possible by the diligent efforts of the AL Post 223 Lt. Timothy Steele Memorial Committee and all of the generous donations by local businesses and the general public. Donations are still graciously accepted to “Duxbury American Legion Memorial Fund” and can be mailed to Duxbury American Legion, PO Box 1113, Duxbury, MA 02331.
