Major Alvin Meers – 95 Years and counting


A hearty congratulations to Major Alvin Meers.  He will be 95 on March 1st.


Major Meers was a member of our post for a few years after relocating from Chicago.   His daughter reports that he is doing well in his new home in Colorado.


He  served in WWII in the Armyalvin meers Air Corps  (Air Force) and was a prisoner-of-war for 11 months.  General Patton liberated his prison camp and he was soon heading stateside.  You can view his complete story on our earlier blog site.  Click here


He has lots of stories to tell and Ed Gill visited him while here on a regular basis.  Let’s all join in to wish him a Happy Birthday.  You can send him a personal birthday card to wish him well on this milestone birthday.  His address is:   Major Alvin Meers, c/o Allan Meers,  4740 W. 99th Avenue Westminster, CO    80031
