The American Legion Post 15 in Lebanon celebrated its centennial Monday with a cookout for members, family and supporters at Don Fox Park.

The event included guest speakers and will commemorated the post, which was chartered on Aug. 11, 1919.

Post 15 was later named for Clyde O. Bratton, an Army lieutenant from Lebanon who was killed in action in WWI, just days before the armistice was signed on Nov. 11, 1918.

The American Legion is the nation's largest veterans service organization, involved in community programs and promoting patriotism and the continued support of veterans.
