The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 163 of Neosho presented the Clyde R. Burdick American Legion Post 163 in Neosho with a lithograph by artist Matt Hall titled "Legacy and Vision". The presentation is in honor of the centennial of The American Legion and the local Legion post.
The lithograph depicts a World War I doughboy (solider) and a 21st century fighter in the global war on terrorism who see in each other's eyes their common bond, a gaze that transverses a century. That bond has come to define The American Legion. The American Legion was founded in 1919 and continues to connect all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces during times of war, through a continuous lineage of individual obligation to community, state and nation, for God and country, regardless of war era.
Ellen Arnce, president of the American Legion Auxiliary, made the presentation of the lithograph at the May meeting.
American Legion Post 163 is located at 1412 Waldo Hatler Drive in Neosho. Clyde Burdick, Neosho, died serving his country on October 9, 1918 in France and is buried at the local IOOF Cemetery.
