More than 400 veterans are attending the State American Legion Convention starting today in Redmond.
Veterans from Oregon’s 122 Posts will be attending sessions at Obsidian Middle School and the American Legion Post in Redmond. Larry Rosach, the Commander of the Redmond American Legion Post, says they want to help veterans keep and find jobs. “This is one of the big things trying to get, that the veterans have jobs when they get back and helping them get jobs. And one of the other things we do is: when veterans are deployed, and their families with troubles, we try to go in and assist, so they can be taken care of.” The State convention will wrap up on Saturday. This is the first time since 1955; Redmond has hosted the American Legion State Convention.
