American Legion, LARKIN CLAY POST NO. 69 — 1924

Blackstone, Virginia

American Legion, 1924

The Larkin Clay Post No. 69, American Legion, was organized in 1919, with fifteen members. While a few years the organization has not shown the increase in members it should, we are now glad to report that the Legion is now on a sound footing and is increasing steadily both in numbers and spirit, until at this time our membership shows a gain of nearly 100 per cent.

The Post has aided five veterans in getting compensation claims adjusted and hospital treatment, and in 1921 twenty-one dollars was raised and paid to the Foreign Graves Endowment Fund.

The officers and members for the year 1924 are as follows:

Officers: W. C. Cook, P. C.; N. L. Beville, V. C.; C. R. Stokes, Adj.; T. A. Moore, F. O. and Service Officer; L. H. Watkins, Sergeant-at-Arms; C. G. Robison, Historian.

Executive Committee: N. L. Beville, L. S. Epes, G. H. Epes, G. R. Stokes, A. S. Rowlett.

Finance Committee: H. S. Robertson, E. M. Jones, J. C. Boggs.
