Although the Women Legionnaires make up a small percentage of our members, they are very active in the Post. Currently Army veteran Louise Michels is Post Historian and others work in various positions in the Post. Our ideal is to have every woman veteran in the area who has served during wartime to be a member of our Post. We have a good start with the ones who turned up for our women veterans appreciation day that we held this Fall.
On September 27, 2014, American Legion Post 166 Honored it's Women Veterans. Past Commander Lee McClaflin was instrumental in getting a program set up for our Women Vets. The program lasted from 3:00 PM until 5:00 PM with a number of Women Vets attending.
Above pictured are 6 of the Ladies who attended the program. From L-R: Diane Harper, Karen Camp, Deborah Shell, Diane Tanner, Linda Shanahan & Louise Michels. They had all come outside to see Past Commander Martin Prices’ 1951 Willys Army Jeep. It is in mint condition and some of the ladies told stories of their jeep experiences.
