COLUMBUS, Ind. — Local American Legion members have taken a big step toward reopening their post — though completing the process likely will take two months and about $30,000.
About 60 members of American Legion Post 24 in Columbus elected a full slate of 10 officers Thursday night at the post, at 2515 25th St., about a month after the Legion’s state officials closed the post because it lacked the required number of officers to perform a post’s duties.
Some legionnaires said at Thursday’s meeting that lack of funds and investments in the building were keeping some younger potential members from joining. However, newly elected Post Commander Rob Steinbach said that Post 24 has the potential to become the most active post in the district.
