Oxford American Legion Post 108 was honored Friday with a visit from U.S. Army First Lt. Ross Skilling, his wife and infant son, his parents, Dr. & Mrs. William Skilling,and his brother.

Lt. Ross presented an American Flag that was flown on a combat mission in Afghanistan to Ladies Auxiliary President Pat Bliss.

Along with this flag, Lt. Ross also presented a Certificate of the flight and a warm thank you letter from his fellow soldiers.

After the presentations, the entire Skilling family enjoyed complimentary dinners.

The Ladies Auxiliary will be having a pre-Christmas packing party on November 10.

Anyone wishing to donate money or needed items may drop them off at Legion Post 108 on E. Drahner Rd.

The cost for shipping one box is $14.95 and the group usually ships 100 boxes. The support the Auxiliary receives from the community is much appreciated.
