West Seattle Veterans Day 2012: American Legion Post 160′s dinner

Even dessert had a patriotic theme tonight in The Triangle at American Legion Post 160‘s free spaghetti dinner for veterans. We stopped in to see how it was going (answer: nicely!), and talked with Post and Auxiliary leaders:

From left – Post 160 Chaplain Mike Daversa, Vice Commander Joe Connery, Auxiliary Unit 160 President Shannon Connery, and Commander Kyle Geraghty. Joe is a U.S. Army veteran, two deployments to Afghanistan; Kyle, a U.S. Marines veteran, including a deployment to Iraq. Both served in the military 2001-2007. (Post-photo, Mike had to step away, so we didn’t get to ask about his service.) The Post also had a donation drive for deployed soldiers; if you missed the chance to donate, you can e-mail ALAUnit160@gmail.com to find out how you can still help.

P.S. Post 160 is now on Facebook (here), as is Auxiliary Unit 160 (here).

  3. The dinner was amazing. Everyone worked so hard and it was wonderful! It was a perfect end to a rainy day. Everyone was so welcoming and it was great for my husband and I. We are both veterans and made to feel immediately welcome. Thank you Post 160 for a wonderful night!

  5. I want to thank everyone for their generous donations and for attending our dinner. It was a wonderful night! And “Happy” – if you google “firecracker cake” you can find a recipe for it.
