The American Legion Post 110, out of Nashville, held its annual Ladies Night on Monday, February 15 at Nashville United Methodist Church.

Ladie’s Night is held each year to honor the widows and wives of local veterans.

Nashville Town Councilwoman Louise Hinton, speaking on behalf of Mayor Donald Street, thanked those men and women in attendance who had served their country proudly. She also individually recognized those who had served in the various wars. 

“I personally want to thank you all,” Hinton said. “To all of you who are here tonight, I am so grateful. Thank you.”

Town Councilman Tommy Rogers, who is also a veteran, was also in attendance. Several American Legion Department of NC Officers were also in attendance, including Department Adjutant Frank Stancil, Department Commander Lou Cook and J.D. Powell and Don Bridges, who both serve on the Administrative Committee. Also in attendance was District IV Commander Tony Leonard. Leonard is also a member of Nashville’s American Legion Post 293.

Theresa Weybrew was also a special guest and announced the formation of the Legion Auxiliary for Post 110. The Post already has around 10 members.

Members of the Nash Central High School NJROTC also participated in the Ladie’s Night events, helping in setup and cleanup. SgtMaj. USMC (RET) Leo Nieves, Jr. led the MIA-POW ceremony.

Post 110 Commander Larry Womack announced the presentation of a flag that was flown over the White House in honor of the Legion Post 110. The flag was flown at the request of Congressman Bob Etheridge and flew over the White House on October. 20, 2009.
