(Wyo.)-Changing Of The Guard At Legion Post 14
LARAMIE, Wyo. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - Members of the American Legion Post 14 in Laramie have elected women for its top three leadership roles.
It's the first time in the post's nearly century long existence that women have held all top three positions.
Air Force veteran Deanna Hurless was installed as post commander, Army veteran Linda Allgeier was installed as vice commander and Navy veteran Toni Elliott was installed as second vice commander.
Hurless was re-elected for a second term as commander.
She says that three women being elected to top positions is a reflection of more women veterans and more women in the armed forces.
Former post commander Joseph Sestak says as long as the post is under good leadership he doesn't care if the top officers are women or men.
