Vet­er­ans who work for New Mil­ford will have their first year of dues to the Amer­i­can Le­gion cov­ered thanks to a res­i­dent’s do­na­tion.

Stephen Looney do­nated the money, Mayor Pete Bass an­nounced this week.

The re­quest came from New Mil­ford Amer­i­can Le­gion Com­man­der Jeff McBreairty at an ear­lier Town Coun­cil meet­ing as a way to in­tro­duce more vet­er­ans to the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s ben­e­fits. He hopes ev­ery town em­ployee who is a vet­eran will sign up, es­pe­cially if the town helps with the dues. McBreairty left 30 names with the mayor’s of­fice.

Dues are $35 per vet­eran. It will be­come the vet­eran’s re­spon­si­bil­ity to pay the dues af­ter the first year and main­tain good stand­ing with the or­ga­ni­za­tion.
