To the editor:
The Pine island American Legion Post #136 held a celebration of the life of Al Orange Sunday, Aug. 4. Al was a long-time member of the post and held many offices one of them being commander.
This was a special day for the Legion Honor Guard and Color Guard since Al was instrumental in forming these groups some 13 years ago. He was also captain of the guard for many years only resigning after an illness forced him to retire.
The Honor Guard and Color Guard presented his family with this flag box and flag for his dedication to these two groups. It was an honor to have served with him all these years. You just had to notify Al and he would have us ready. May he rest in peace.
