American Legion National Vice Commander to Visit Glasgow
The American Legion's National Vice Commander Paul L. Espinoza will be at the Glasgow Veterans of Foreign Wars Post on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 3 p.m. The meet and greet will involve a question and answer segment on veterans' issues and about the American Legion Organization on a local and National level.
American Legion District 1 Commander Joe Yeoman expressed his excitement about the visit. "If you have questions concerning veterans, ask him," said Yeoman adding that, "I'm excited, because I have questions for him too. He is knowledgeable about issues and getting things done."
Commander Espinoza was elected to his post in 2016, and is a member of American Legion Post 13 in Albuquerque, N.M. He served in the U.S. Army for four years of active duty in the 82nd Airborne Division. Espinoza then served 18 years in the New Mexico Army National Guard with various units throughout the state. His military service included a tour in Iraq.
Yeoman stressed that this is the first national level commander to come to Northeast Montana, and he believes the visit will help with veterans' issues in remote regions of the country. "He's touring the whole of eastern Montana, so it will be good for someone from down south to go up to Plentywood. Hopefully we can educate him."
