Rep. announces WW II registration
   Rep. Rich Nugent (FL-05) announced recently that his District Office would be providing assistance to veterans who wish to be registered with the National World War II Memorial.
   On Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the month of September, World War II veterans are invited to stop by the congressman’s district office, located at 16224 Spring Hill Drive in Brooksville for assistance registering with the National World War II Memorial.
   The information required by the Memorial for registration is the veteran’s name, branch of service, and hometown or state where they lived when they went into the service.  The Memorial also asks for optional information such as rank, activities while serving, where the veteran served and any medals or awards they received.  All of this information can be obtained from the veteran’s DD-214.
For any questions, please call the Congressman’s District Office at 866-492-4835.  More information is available online at http://www.wwiimemorial.com.

American Legion marks leader's death
