Commander Terry Mosher​ led a successful Membership Drive in the front of Ace Hardware at Buckwalter Drive. There was a lot of interest generated and hopefully future members. There also a generous amount of donations made to 'Operation WipeOut'. It was an enjoyable time. Ace Hardware was great in their support and will support us in the future. Ace is the place!!

OPERATION WIPEOUT

To the American Legion Post 205 Membership,                                                                       
“Operation Wipeout” is now two years old, and Post 205 will continue to provide Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) and the Training Depot at Parris Island items that they need. The items needed by the young military families continue to be baby diapers. Our goal has been to provide at least $1,000. worth of diapers of varying sizes on an annual basis. 

Your charitable contribution will go a long way in helping these young military families. We hope to make delivery of the diapers each spring. The “Operation Wipeout” Committee already has a pretty good idea of the diaper sizes the families require so there should be no problems. If we should require assistance regarding the transportation of the many boxes of diapers, we will let you know.

Update - (7-1-2024): The diapers were ordered and have arrived. The tentative delivery date is July12, 2024. We will be delivering 4380!! diapers of various sizes to MCAS.
