American Legion Post donates blankets to veterans in Troutville
American Legion Post 240 recently distributed fleece-lined blankets to all the veterans who reside at the Cave Creek Assisted Living Center on Rt. 11 in Troutville.
Commander Dennis Craft and Adjutant Joel Eig had a meet and greet with all the veterans that Chery, the assistant manager, had arranged and then made sure each member received a nice warm, new blanket.
All recipients expressed their thanks for their Christmas gift.
