      Very Cool. At the time of the photograph, American Legion membership was limited to WWI veterans, so this is the coming together of two distinct generations of vets.

      The American Legion would open it's membership up to veterans of all wars in 1946

      Chrisnp, wow, interesting. So all the other guys in the photograph , WWI veterans along with the bandmembers and the Spanish American war vets. I also researched the American Legion post, it was named after the first local casualty hero of WWI, Herbert Paul Lentz. Thanks for the information!!!
