Le­gion post name changed, but achieve­ments re­main

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

For the last 12 years, the Amer­i­can Le­gion Post 341 in Bella Vista has been called Amer­i­can Le­gion Mar­shall S. Sayner Post 341. Re­cently, by vote, the post has been re­named W.E. “Rocky” Glid­well Post 341. I don’t know why.

I only knew Mar­shall Sayner dur­ing his last years in Bella Vista. He and his wife, Grace, are dead. From my view, Mar­shall was a gi­ant. His en­tire life in Bella Vista re­volved around Amer­i­can Le­gion. No one, in my es­ti­ma­tion, did more to ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity and Amer­i­can Le­gion Post 341 than Mar­shall Sayner. I don’t think you’d find a more suc­cess­ful sales­man for the Amer­i­can Le­gion. The post ranked among the top three in the state, thanks to Mar­shall.
