Three generations of American Legion members celebrate a total of 130 years of membership

Recently a local family was recognized as having three generations of American Legion members. The first generation member, Dick Schmitz, was in the Air Force during the Korean War, 1950-1953, and was recently recognized for 60 years in the American Legion. Stationed at Sanford Air Force Base in Geneva, NY, Schmitz was a cook at a training base. His family claims he is an excellent chef, so the men there must have eaten well. Schmitz is now living in the nursing home in Platte.
