BUCKHANNON – The Buckhannon Post 7 American Legion baseball team marched in the local Veterans Day parade Monday morning.

“I thought it would be a great way for our players to show our local veterans honor and respect,” remarked Post 7 manager Kevin Boring. “We had 13 of our 15 players from last year’s team attend and participate, the only two that didn’t march graduated last year and are in college. I think our players generally understand the importance of community service but when they can actually be a hands-on-part of it, that makes a greater impact. I hope this will now be an annual event for our team and players.”
