There was a changing of the guard at American Legion Post 86 as Bill Glass took over as commander from Don Hazzard, who served in that position for 10 years. The change occurred July 1 but was recognized in a ceremony at the post on July 17. Hazzard will continue serving the post as its financial officer.
A member of the post for 14 years, Glass is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and and Navy Reserve. He had just retired from the reserves when Bing Ventres recruited him, “and I’ve enjoyed it ever since,” Glass said. The American Legion, he said, “does a lot of good for veterans and the community.”
