Iraq War Vet Leads NY State American Legion

Gary Schacher
Commander Schacher
Gary Schacher of Cobleskill (Schoharie County) is the first Iraq war veteran to become  commander of The American Legion Department of New York.

His election came just before the conclusion of the 100th Department Convention, held July 19-21 in Rochester.

“Never give up!” is his theme for his year. “We are 100 years strong and we are paving the way for the next 100 years to be the voice for veterans.”
