"I've been a member of the American Legion for 16 years," Miner said. "I'm very honored to become commander of American Legion Post #136. The post is in very good shape we just want to make a few small improvements."

The ceremony began with a moment of silence for former Commander Larry Nixon. Nixon passed away on Saturday. He was originally from Long Beach Island, New Jersey, and served as fire chief of the Wrightstown Volunteer Fire Company for 35 years before moving to Southwest Florida. From 1962 to 1966, he served in the U.S. Coast Guard.

He was a member of the American Legion for more than 30 years and Commander of Post 136 from 2015-2016.
