American commander in Lodi history.
“It is history in the making,” he said.
But equally important to Bojorques is retaining the military and
American Legion traditions. That requires getting younger veterans
— from the Vietnam War through the Iraq and Afghan wars — into the

Years ago, our mailman delivered five letters to our address,
one for each of our four children and myself, but none for my wife.

peace-loving tribe of less than 4,000 members.
