The American Legion

Synepuxent Post 166


The Color Guard is one of the uniformed groups in the Legion and serve as the American Legion's "display cases", so to speak. At Parades, Funerals and special events, they advertise the Legion's size, scope and substance to the public at large; they are one of the finest opportunities for post public realtions. They afford those involved a sence of accomplishment, and a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment.

                 In December 2021, the color Guard of Synepuxent made its annual trip to the Perry Point Medical Center where in the passed they handed out hoodies and heated socks to the residents. This ear they passed out 200 pairs of gloves to the vets who surely needed them to help keep warm in the winter.

These photos were from 2019 when the Heated socks  passed out by Earl Hewitt, Glen Reely and (Santa) John Bussard 
Color Guard members Johan Nykuist and Earl Hewitt were there also in 2020 Glenn Reely and Santa Bussard took a break after delivering their goodies
