My brother is a Viet Nam War vet and an active member of the American Legion in Tell City, Indiana.  He is coming to California for his yearly "sister" visit and I am taking him to dinner at our Local American Legion Post 257 here in Laguna Woods, CA.   I found such an interesting article on their web page that I want to share with you.   Every year, the American Legion sponsors a Student Oratorical Contest that examines some aspect of our U.S. Constitution.  I am going to read to you one of the  speeches.    I searched and searched to try to find out who did this speech, but couldn't find out.  It was one that was  submitted in the 2017 National Oratorical Contest.  

I hope you enjoy this information as much as I did.
