American Legion Post 110 hosted its annual Ladies Night on Monday evening, focusing on the spouses and widows of service men in the organization.
Though the event's focus was on the ladies, an American Legion member was recognized for his long-term service to the organization.
Buddy Moss was recognized by Commander Jim Boehm for his 51 years of service to the American Legion. Moss was presented the Certificate of Continuous Membership by Boehm.
Boehm said the certificate is given to those members who have served for 50 or more years with the American Legion. The award is given from the national American Legion organization.
Boehm said Moss was very deserving of the award, as he has always been an active member of Post 110.
"Buddy has done a lot in the community," Boehm said.
Moss, of Nashville, served for three years in the United States Army. Though he has not served in any officer position with the post, Moss is always giving of his time and volunteering in numerous capacities.
Moss continues to volunteer in his community by helping those who cannot drive get to the hospital and doctor's appointments, Boehm said.
Moss said he enjoys being a part of the American Legion.
"I thoroughly enjoyed it for a long time, I really did," Moss said.
Another long-time member, Willard Inscoe, was also recognized for his service.
Boehm said Inscoe is 101-years-old, which is older than the American Legion organization.
Inscoe spent three years in the military, serving in World War II.
Boehm said the annual Ladies Night event is held each year to recognize those who have supported their spouses while in service. Several state Legion officials attended the annual event, including State Commander David Shore.
"We just want to thank you for your service," Boehm said. "It means a lot."
