Jeff Stoffer, editor of the American Legion Magazine, spoke with America’s Work Force on June 21 about the past 100 years of their publication.
Stoffer talked about the American Legion Magazine and the 100 year anniversary of its publication, which is July 4. He spoke about where it all began, the original issue, the prestigious writers that have written articles for their publication and the awards that they have received. Stoffer then discussed the 75th anniversary of the D-Day attacks during WWII and the ceremony that was held on the beaches in honor of that day. He said that he feels today’s youth is still actively researching the history of D-Day even though there is less history of American military activity in school textbooks.
Norm Wernet, state director for the Alliance of Retired Americans, joined AWF on June 21 to talk about expanding and strengthening the social security system. He wants to strengthen the social security system because people work hard for all that they put into their social security and deserve to be able to access it when they retire. Lastly, Wernet said that we need to strengthen the social security system so that we do not have a financial disaster to deal with in the near future.
