The female Legionnaires receiving a license plate frame are (L-R)Myra Jowers. USAF, Deb Lust. Army, Marilyn Gilmore. USAF, Leslie Montee. USAF, Amanda Collins. Army, Jennifer Johnson. Army, Marri Krupco. Navy.


Post Commander Carl Jowers gave each female Legionnaire a customized license plate frame that showed their branch of service and the words “Women are Veterans Too.”  Commander Jowers believes that in today’s Legion, no Post can be successful if they do not recruit and retain female Veterans as members.
