Memorial Day 2022
Thanks to everyone who came to Grandscape to honor the real reason we remember Memorial Day. Special thanks to The Colony Police Department Honor Guard presenting the Colors, Preston White on the Bagpipes, Robert Spooner, LtCol, USMC (ret) our guest speaker, and Arden Ogilvie, singing the National Anthem. The beautiful poppies were hand-made by the Sarah Kincaid Cook chapter of the Daughters of The American Revolution. Over 1,000 people visited the WWI mobile museum to revel at the 100 year old artifacts.
Commander’s Comments April 2022
“Why this Post is on FIRE!”
Holley-Riddle Post 21 and Squadron 21 SAL have hosted several successful events – Veterans Day, our Christmas party, the Vietnam War Era Veterans breakfast, annual Golf tournament, etc., and we have been bringing more excitement, fun and involvement to our Post family. Our vision and mission guide us where we want to go as a Post that serves veterans and our community. We expect great things and hold ourselves accountable. We built a strong sense of camaraderie and, as veterans do best, we have each other’s backs. Our volunteerism and teamwork are incredible; we are smart and fearless in tackling our goals, overcoming doubters, and increasing our motivation. Our amazing group of spouses and friends are right there with us, raising the bar in all we do.

At Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery this past December, Post 21 and Squadron 21 Sons of the American Legion and their families and friends helped place over 48,000 fresh wreaths, covering every veteran grave at DFW National for the first time in several years.
