At the luncheon we will present the Legion of Merit awards. It you have collected more than 3000 points you can receive the basic medal of the order. The basic medal is $30.00, each star is $1.50 and if you have reached a point where you need the next higher ribbon it will be $1.50. If you don’t know where you stand, (see LOM Point Chart below) I hope we can get as large a turn out as possible and remember you may bring a guest. We will need to let the restaurant know how many people will be attending as soon as possible.

You may write a check payable to the:

“Col. George L. Willard Camp #154 SUVCW” for the cost of the medal items which may be paid at the luncheon and it would be helpful if you would pay cash at the time of the dinner.

Please let Cmdr. Castler know by email at cmdr@glwillard154.org as soon as possible and no later than June 13th, if you are attending, and how many guests you are bringing.
