On Friday, June 14th, The American Legion National Commander, Daniel J. Seehafer, visited the Stephen C. Ludlam American Legion Post 331 in Stone Harbor, NJ. He had recently returned from taking part in the D-Day memorial events in Normandy, France. This was the second time in four years that a National Commander has visited the post.

There are 13,000 American Legion posts worldwide with nearly 2 million members. Accompanying the commander were Gene O’Grady, Alternative NJ Representative to the American Legion National Executive Committee, Chuck Robbins, Department of NJ representative, and the commander’s aide, Mike Rohan who is also the husband of former National Commander Denise Rohan. Post 331’s building, a restored 1895 US Lifesaving Station, is on the State and National Registries of Historic Places and had been featured in the March edition of The American Legion Magazine.

Commander Seehafer was greeted at curbside by Post 331 Commander Thomas McCullough. He was then given a tour of the historic building and its museums by members Dick Pike and Bill Lehman. After the tour, Commander McCullough showed him all the improvements that had been made to the building and grounds as a result of two recent grants from the Home Depot Foundation and enumerated the significant donations we make to veteran’s causes each year.

Commander McCullough then presented Commander Seehafer with an engraved paver, which will be installed in our walkway of memories in commemoration of his visit. He was also presented with a Post 331 cap and Post Commander’s coin. The visit ended with the two commanders cutting the welcome cake and sharing it and coffee with the local legionnaires present. A photographic record of the visit was made by Craig Miller.
