Doris Miller American Legion Post 213 - Prep Day

November 10, 2023

11:00 AM - 03:00 PM EST

New York City Platoon

Event overview

This upcoming Veteran's Day weekend, join the TMC NYC platoons as we are commemorating Veterans Day 2023 with a Service Project back in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

We're Partnering alongside our Veteran Service Org Partner, The American Legion. The Park Slope Armory hosts the Dorie Miller AL Post 213, which supports Veterans from the surrounding Park Slope & Sunset Park Communities. If you want to know more about this post, feel free to check out the links below.

We'll continue the good work with our Beautification Service Project, which includes BOTH Indoor & Outdoor Tasks. The tasks that we will be focusing on are below:

1. Painting a Military History Suite, which in the future will be turned into a small museum.

2. Help archive, box, and scan documents from the fabled US Army All-Black 369th Infantry Regiment from WWI & WWII. This will not only help the legion create more space for other events and opportunities, but it will help make conserving the history of the regiment a lot easier to manage.

3. Build a Designated Veteran's Garden for the Older Veterans who are part of the Legion and surrounding community to Enjoy. This will allow the Legion to utilize the green space out front to the fullest to conduct future events and opportunities for years to come.

4. Trash pick up and sweeping as needed around the Legion.

This event will happen rain or shine. Families are welcome and we’ll have something for everyone. Breakfast and Lunch will also be provided, so you're not going to go home hungry and if you do, we failed you.

Please consider attending our Veteran Day's event to ensure Park Slope Armory is a more inviting venue for family, friends, and children from the surrounding communities to partake in this historic landmark.
