Meet Navy Hospitalman and Somerset High School graduate Drew Pasno and 2 fellow Alpha Company Docs. Drew is an active duty member of Post 111. Drew’s dad is also an active member of the Sons at Post 111.
When Drew was home on leave this year, we asked him how we could best support support him and his fellow servicemen while they were deployed. That was when we learned that (due to various factors) it can be hard for Docs to get their hands on good medical kits in the field.
We asked Drew for a wish list of supplies and submitted that wish list to one of our monthly member meetings. From there it went to an active officer of Post 111 – a retired medic – who confirmed that it was a reasonable list and helped us track down the best sources for military medical supplies.
We received this photo in our thank you letter from Drew and his team. Supplies sent included backpacks, ENT kits, strap cutters, tourniquets, and pulse oximeters.

It is the beginning of the Centennial celebration, Minneapolis was the site where the American Legion began with a meeting in 1918 that created the organization and founded the National American Legion being established January 1, 1919.
