Representatives of Harrah’s Metropolis Casino and Hotel recently awarded the Metropolis American Legion Post 306 and its Honor Guard with a $3000 contribution.
The Honor Guard is a volunteer-based group within the American Legion. It provides military honors and rights to fellow veterans at no cost to the families.
“The Honor Guard has a wonderful history of those who served long ago, and of those who are serving now. The honor they bring to the veterans who have been called to other duties can never be surpassed. Those honored are from all walks of life and are of different nationalities, races and creeds,” said Chad Lewis, advertising and public relations for Harrah’s Metropolis. “The dignified services have become widely recognized throughout the community and beyond allowing this group of volunteers to honor their fellow veterans the way they honored their country.”
The donation will assist in supplying the Honor Guard volunteers with new and matching uniforms when called upon to perform military rights.
