OXFORD – “Sometimes all that is needed is a simple ‘thank you’ directed at the veteran or the family member for his or her sacrifice.” stated Dale Dewey, Second Vice-Commander and Chaplain for the Oxford American Legion Fort Hill Post #376.



Saying “thank you” was the prevalent message conveyed by the Fort Hill Legion at the Veterans Day ceremony held at the traditional “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.” Outside, the flag was half-mast; inside, a bell was tolled eleven times.

Legion family: Legionnaires, Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion and community members came to commemorate the services of veterans of all wars.
