Buckhannon Post 7 of the American Legion and the Upshur County Commission joined together Thursday to issue three proclamations promoting Americanism and patriotism. The county commissioners proclaimed Sept. 11 as a Day to Remember, honoring the lives lost in the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. The commissioners proclaimed Sept. 16 as American Legion Day, honoring the organization which was founded shortly after the end of World War I, and Sept. 20 as POW/MIA Recognition Day for those captured during times of war or those who have never been found.
