American Legion Post #1 Supports Veteran Health Motorcycle Outreach MissionSalem-News.com
Portland post supports our efforts to educate Veterans.
(PORTLAND) - The American Legion Post #1 in Portland made a generous donation to Operation Red Dragonfly, Salem-News.com's Veteran Health Outreach Mission that is taking place for the second year in a row.
Salem-News.com editor Tim King will traverse the nation, giving talks about critical life and death issues affecting Veterans, their families, and all Americans.
In the video below, recorded Wednesday night in Portland at the American Legion Hall on SE 122nd, Tim gives examples of what his talks are about.
The objectives include sharing information about deadly toxic base contamination, raising awareness of existing and developing answers for those who suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, with an emphasis on lowering the rate of Veteran suicide, and other issues that have heavy impacts on the Veteran population in America, including Agent Orange, and the effects that toxin has on the children of Vietnam Veterans.
Last summer, Tim King rode 11,500 miles before returning to the west coast.
He says the reception he received all over the country was strong, he believes the talks and the associated media coverage are making a difference.
We sincerely thank Commander John Bonner for the financial support offered by American Legion Post #1 in Portland, and to those who contribute to our efforts to raise serious awareness; it all helps very much, we look forward to getting Operation Red Dragonfly 2014 on the road.
