Another Transfer to Post Everlasting
and a Substantial Loss to Post 798

After years of fighting a debilitating disease, our own immeasurable honorary 1st Vice Commander, the Honorable Robert McPherson, was finally transferred by God to Post Everlasting on the morning of Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at the age of 76.


A U.S. Navy veteran and motorcycle enthusiast, Bob later served quite capably as the Mayor of  Reynoldsburg for twenty years, from 1987 to 2007. His passing is a heavy loss to the leadership of our post, and he will be missed in so many ways. But his administration has left our city a much better place than before.


May God have mercy on his soul.


Our condolences and deep sympathy go to his loving wife Karen, who tragically also lost her mother just the week before. We love you Karen, and will keep you and Bob in our prayers.

Called Home by God -

A Sorrowful Loss to the District

After several years of battling brain tumors, that wonderful, inimitable, great lady of the 12th District, Carole Ebersole, was transferred to heaven on the evening of Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at the age of 74.


President of the Gahanna Post 797 Ladies Auxiliary unit and a vital part of Central Ohio's American Legion Ladies Auxiliary for decades, her passing has left a hole in our hearts. No words can describe how sorely her light will be missed, and her absence has left our world a little bit colder... But heaven will now be a little bit warmer.


May God have mercy on her soul.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and to her staunch, loving  husband Steve, our 12th District Council's reliable executive secretary.
