It is with deep regret to inform you that James H. Stewart, Jr, known as “Jimmy” of Palm Bay, Florida passed away on 18 June 2015 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident earlier in the week. Jimmy was a member of the American Legion with 8 years of continuous service through eligibility during the Lebanon/Grenada conflict while serving in the US Army and the US Marine Corps as a Field Artilleryman. Jimmy was Service Officer of the American Legion Post 117 and also of the 12th District for one term. He was also Treasurer and Chaplain of the American Legion Riders Chapter 117 for one term. Jimmy was very active as a Veteran’s Advocate and as an example of a hard-working and dedicated Legionnaire who served the Community, State and Nation. He will be missed. Funeral arrangements are pending at this time. I will give an update as soon as funeral arrangements are made. Please keep Jimmy’s family in your prayers.
National Commander Mike Helm is hoping that many Legionnaires, Sons of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary Members, Riders and friends of The American Legion will give the gift of life by donating at the blood drive that will occur this year at The American Legion National Convention. He is hoping that you will note on your calendars the dates of the drive: Friday, Aug. 28 and Monday, August 31, 9 am to 2:30 pm, Baltimore Convention Center, Halls D&E, Level 100. See you in Baltimore and thank you in advance for supporting this great cause!
