The Gahanna American Legion Honor Guard is proud to be able to carry out their duties in honoring our veterans in the Gahanna and surrounding areas. This is an honor for us to do and we hope to continue doing what we do, but the ranks are getting thin and we need volunteers to step up and help us out.
