The City of Buckhannon honored Bob Post as its 18th recipient of the Buckhannon Exemplary Service Testimonial Award Friday. Post served in the U.S. Army and is a member of the Frank B. Bartlett American Legion Post 7, having positions as post commander, first vice commander, Americanism chair and member of the Combined Honor Guard. In 2008, Post spearheaded the effort sponsored by Post 7 to realize the instruction of patriotism and Americanism throughout all West Virginia public schools, bringing awareness to all K-12 students of American wartime involvement and the service of our military personnel. The program launched statewide in 2013. Post’s name will be added to the BEST Bench in Jawbone Park. Left to right, are Post and Mayor David McCauley.
