Hunter Squires Jackson American Legion Post 1218 had much of its internal infrastructure damaged due to vandalism and theft, including heat and water, and have been unable to rent out their building – which many veterans organizations rely on to pay their bills. Please help us support Hunter Squires Jackson American Legion Post 1218 as they work to get their building back to rentable condition.
