American Legion Family answers national commander’s candles of honor callout

American Legion National Commander Bill Oxford asked, and the American Legion Family answered.

In the weeks leading up to Memorial Day, Oxford asked Legion Family members to light candles of remembrance and placing them on front porches at dusk on Memorial Day. The purpose, Oxford said, was to “show our respects by lighting and displaying candles to remind everyone why we must never forget the meaning of this sacred holiday.”

The American Legion Family responded, using social media to share dozens of photos using the hashtag #candlesofhonor. We’ve put together an album of some of the photos that were shared; find out on our National Headquarters Facebook page.

Thanks to all who participated in this campaign.
