MEDINA – The Sons of the American Legion in Medina donated $500 recently towards a replacement van for veterans. The Sons have given about $2,000 towards vans that are used to transport veterans to appointments at VA health care sites.

The latest replacement van was recently put into service by the Joint Veterans Council Medical Transport service.

The Sons of the American Legion group is associated with the Butts-Clark Post 204 in Medina. The Sons are not Legion members because they have not served in the military. However, they have had a relative that has served in the military and who has been a member of the American Legion.

“We help the Legion anyway we can,” said Sons Commander Chuck Eaton.

That includes helping with the Legion’s fundraisers and donating to the many causes that the Legion embraces.

“This is the third time that we have donated to the Joint Veterans’ Council for the van service,” Eaton said. “We do all we can.”
