New York Department leaders are making visitations around the state, sharing their vision and passion with local Legion Family members. Here's an example of such a visit -- to the 5th District's Oneida County.

|Cmdr. Tim Van Patten|
"Every once in a while someone will say, 'Do you guys do anything but sit around the bar telling war stories?'"
During a visit to Oneida County Sept. 29, Van Patten told a packed banquet hall at New Hartford Post 1376 what he says to such a question.
