When Area American Legion Riders Saw an Establishment in Need of a New American Flag, They Made it a Mission



When members of the American Legion Riders of Post 133 in Millbrook visited Jake’s Fish Camp recently, they noticed the American Flag flying at the establishment was in need of replacement. The Veterans took swift action.  Jake’s Fish Camp is located at 125 Jakes Landing Rd, Burkville, Alabama.

“It was a proud Commander moment,” Leslie Jefferies Looney, Commander of American Legion Post 133 told the Elmore/Autauga News. “I am so blessed that I am also a Rider! I know this seems like a small act but with everything going on in the world today, every flag flown is a sign of respect for all those that made the ultimate sacrifice for this great country.”

Post 133 American Legion Riders went to Jake’s recently to support the establishment. While there, the Riders’ Director Frank Grizzell noticed that the American flag flying was unserviceable. So, the Post 133 Riders purchased a new pole and flag, mounted the new pole and hung the new flag. The American Legion Post 122 of Prattville American Legion Riders and Predators Riding Club also came to show their respect for the mission.

Looney said that all together there were about 40 Riders and supporters.
