Showing support

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

The Milford American Legion knows how the citizens of Milford support the military and our veterans and that same support also extends to the local law enforcement officers.

Starting on Thursday and for the next week (at a minimum), the Legion is asking the public to show support for our local law enforcement officers. It is in times like the situation last Sunday night that our community needs to show we support our officers.

The Milford American Legion is asking for the public to display the blue lights, your thin blue line flags, signs of support for our officers. Let's not let the officers who were faced with a very difficult situation just over a week ago question our support for them. We would like to see the support start as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support of those who have and continue to protect us overseas and here at home.

Thank you.

Tom Arends

American Legion Commander
