A vaccine pop-up will be coming to the Breed Jr. HS in Lynn on February 20 (details coming later) for veterans who are 50 and over. Need to be enrolled in the VA health care system. Nahant Veterans can see the Town Veterans Service Officer for a quick and easy application (which you may or may not have to accept or participate in).

Today the Nahant American Legion Post 215 honors US Navy Veteran Joseph T. Casey on the one year anniversary of his passing by flying the family's American Flag displayed in the home of his daughter, Nahant resident Kathy Eaton. We also fly the US Navy Service Flag.
Joe was born in Lynn and attended St Patrick’s School. When he was a young child, his family moved to Nahant where he spent his boyhood exploring its natural beauty: East Point, Forty Steps, and Swallow’s Cave were among his favorites. He attended Nahant Public Schools before graduating from Lynn Classical High School in 1952.
From 1952-1956, he served his country as a Gunner’s Mate on the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Wallace L. Lind (DD-703).

An American Legion Honor Guard retired the family colors Monday morning at 0800 (8am) with a short service. Please see photos below.
Today we honor and recognize, US Navy Veteran John, C. Johnson by flying the US Navy Service Flag at the Nahant Lifesaving Station, home to American Legion Post 215.
John is the brother of our beloved friend and American Legion Auxiliary Member Esther Johnson. John was a US Navy Veteran who served during both the North Korean and Vietnam Wars. He was most recently a resident of the Georgia War Veterans Home.
