Post 331 in Stone Harbor raises funds to send two Coast Guardsmen from Training Center Cape May home to spend holidays with their families

Legionnaire James Fleischmann remembers what it was like to serve in the Air Force and not have much in the way of expendable income. And he remembers what it was like to be away from family over the holidays during service.
So Fleischmann – a member of Stephen Ludlam American Legion Post 331 in Stone Harbor, N.J. – went to his post with the idea to send a Coast Guardsmen stationed at nearby Training Station Cape May home for the holidays to see either mom or grandma. As a result, Petty Officer 3rd Class Cameron Hutchens and Seaman Betty Siscoe will be heading home soon, all expenses paid.

STONE HARBOR – For members of Stephen Ludlam American Legion Post 331, Dec. 7 is a day to honor those who served in the Second World War as well as those still serving. Because of the high respect its legionnaires have for veterans, especially those who fought Axis foes 73 years ago, they will mark the “day that will live in infamy” with an informal afternoon reception.
From 1 to 4:30 p.m., World War II veterans who reside locally, estimated from 16 to 20, will be guests of honor at the open house hosted by the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion. The public is invited to visit with those who fought in Germany, Italy or the Pacific Theater.
