American Legion Post 82 made a contribution last week to support the families of fallen veterans. When the Special Operations Warrior Foundation trekked through Franklin County last week on a 450-mile march to raise funds, they made a stop on the east end of the county. Representatives from Camp Cordon Johnston Post 82 met the marchers at their last scheduled stop in the county, Alligator Point Road, to present the Warrior Foundation with a check for $100.

The foundation raises funds to provide emergency assistance to the families of injured military personnel and to create scholarships for the children of soldiers killed during an operational or training mission under the US Special Operations Command
