The Legion will host 50 recruits from Great Lakes Naval Base. The sailors will arrive by bus around 8:30 a.m. and will be greeted by Legion members, village officials, friends, and whomever else wishes to greet them and thank them for their service.
There will be refreshments donated by legion members, friends and local merchants. The sailors will be served a full Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. Entertainment will be available along with nationwide long distance and international phone service all day long compliments of AT&T. Computers will also be available.
The sailors will have the opportunity to talk and email their loved ones throughout the day. After graduation many of these young men and women will be sent into harms way. The day's events will be filmed and a DVD will be sent to their families as a thank you for their service.
The Morton Grove American Legion Post 134 also contributes to and supports other veteran and active military activities with our donations and takes pride in entertaining our troops each year and wants to continue to support them if they should fall victim in harms way.
