Welcome to American Legion Post 703


Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of The American Legion and the The American Legion Riders make up what is known as The Legion Family. All these organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.

Dear Legion Family,

It's with a sadden n heavy heart that I report that yet another Fellow Legionnaire has been called to Post Everlasting.

Eric Scharlow lost his battle with cancer on Wednesday May 31st. I have been diligently working with his wife, Kelly, Hampshire Funeral Home and his family to get all arrangements completed.

Eric loved our country, the Army and our Post. As such his last request was for his life's celebration to be done so at the Post he called home.

He will be cremated and tentatively a Blue Cap Service, which he requested, will be conducted at 12 noon, 24 June at our Post. Viewing and final respects will commence at 11 AM followed by BCS at noon and a celebration of his life. Again this is tentative due to much of his family traveling from out of State.

I will keep all informed as to any chances concerning this service.

For God and Country
