Welcome to the Morvay - Miley Post 524 Website
Thanks for stopping! You are invited to take a look around our site and find out more about our Post family and the American Legion.
As a local Post in the foremost Veterans organization in the world, we are firmly committed to our mission of serving the Veteran community and their families; and one very important way we strive to accomplish this is with the help of our ever-growing membership who volunteer their time so generously on the many projects and activities that makes us the robust Post that we are.
Please save the date of Saturday March 25th. Post 184 American Legion and Chapter 955, Vietnam Veterans of America, both of Wildwood, NJ along with numerous veterans and their families and extended families will be holding a RALLY to bring awareness of the effects of TOXIC exposure (Agent Orange) that has affected millions of veterans and now is being investigated to have an adverse effect on the children and grandchildren of the veterans. Also, the rally will focus on the health care that veterans are receiving from the Veterans Administration (VA) here in Cape May County. Our veterans are often required to make the trip to Wilmington Delaware or Philadelphia to get health care, often for just a 10 minute appointment. Please try to attend. The rally begins at the Wildwoods Vietnam Memorial Wall, Burk and Ocean Avenues, Wildwood at 11 AM. After some brief speeches a motorcade will proceed to Mile Post 18.3 (Ocean View Rest Stop) on the Garden State Parkway where the second part of the Rally will take place. Expected time at the rest stop is 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm. At this location there will be plenty of safe off highway parking. The rally at this location will be held at the memorial at the south end of the plaza. We hope that everyone will attend.

Post member Joe Cary had the pleasure of taking Hershel W. “Woody” Williams, retired United States Marine, to lunch after an event in Annapolis, Maryland. Woody is the last surviving recipient of the Medal of Honor from the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II. WIKIPEDIA – HERSHEL W. WILLIAMS
