Smith-Bryant Post 572


Leadership Recognition

Currently serving as Post 572 vice commander, Jim Cox had devoted four consecutive years to serving as the Post Commander. Always searching for ideas and programs to provide for community military veterans, then commander Cox was a keen advocate of civic and sports activities for youth and young adults to participate in and aspire to make a difference in our city schools and after-school program.  

Commander Meurer made very fitting remarks as he presented Cox with the polished plaque and gavel memento. Those attending the March 16, 2021, general membership meeting responded with a rousing round of applause.

Cox had embraced the concept of Veterans Strengthening America well before it was adopted in 2020 as The American Legion motto.
