The group -- with upwards of 20 members from law enforcement, schools, healthcare, churches and even some recovering addicts – has been working for a few years trying to come up with solutions to the problem.

Four committee members – Parkview Wabash Hospital President Marilyn Custer-Mitchell, Mayor Scott Long, MSD of Wabash County Superintendent Mike Keaffaber and Chief Probation Officer Sarah Lochner – discussed their efforts with The Paper of Wabash County.

American Legion eligibility changes

Congress officially voted to reduce the number of eligibility periods to join the American Legion. What used to be seven specific periods has been reduced down to two broad sections of time, opening the doors to more veterans.

The qualifying periods are now April 6, 1917, to Nov. 11, 1918, along with Dec. 7, 1941 through today. This means all those who served in the past 78 years, and were not dishonorably discharged, are now eligible.

David Burnette, Indiana’s 5th District Commander, has been travelling the surrounding counties to educate local posts about the new rules. He was excited when he heard the news of the act’s official passing.
