Mountain Post 781 S.A.L.'S newest and youngest members stand with the Post's oldest active member, 86 year old Raymond Samolis, WWII Veteran.

  The three recently marched in the local July 4th parade. The parade is held each year and Ray marched in each one and plans to do it again next year. This year's parade was 2 miles long and the temperatures were in the high 80s.
