New American Legion Post 86 officers in Wilton were recently elected during the Post’s regular meeting on Tuesday, June 8 for 2021-22.

New Commander Paul Niche, Sr. Vice-Commander Tom Moore, Sgt. at arms Jeff Turner, Chaplain Frank Dunn, Service Officer Bob Mecozzi, and the re election of current Jr. Vice-Commander Alex Ruskewich, Adjutant & Historian Tom Moore, Finance Officer Sean McNeill, and Judge Advocate Don Hazzard are the new slate in charge of the comfy and quaint post in Wilton Center.

At the same meeting, Wilton Eagle Scout Ian Kineon received The American Legion’s Good Citizen Award for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout. Kineon’s final project was to build the Post 86 fire pit, where the members of the Post retire American Flags each year during a respectful and solemn ceremony.
