About a dozen souls stood in solemn respect facing the American Flag as it was raised in dedication Saturday at noon outside the new Danville AmVets Post 123 location at 850 Stanford Road.
The new location was obtained about six months ago, according to Robert Robbins, who is the adjunct and financial officer for the post, and was remodeled to suit the purposes of the group.
Saturday’s ceremony was a “grand opening” of sorts for the new location.
The raised flag is also an invitation to area vets who may be unaware of the organization to consider becoming members.
“We serve vets in every aspect possible,”¿Robbins said. “We hold benefits to raise money for the veterans hospitals and if, say, the wife of a vet needs a handicap ramp built, we build it. Whatever is needed, we will be there.”
Post Commander Bill Edwards said any veteran that shows up at the door with a need will get help.
