The Legion Family of Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 is proud to be the sponsor of 12 Vienna-area rising seniors at this year’s 77th Session of Virginia Boys State held at Radford University. One of the students sponsored is the son of Delegate Mark Keam who is the elected representative of our beloved Town of Vienna .
Delegate Keam visited us today at Radford University and spoke with students about what being an elected representative is about. His insighful testimony inspired all in attendance.
We’ve always considered Mark part of the legion family for his steadfast support of our events, but now he truly is part of our family. Just like we say to all the young men we sponsor for VA Boys State, all these young men and their families are now part of our Legion family
Myself and First Vice Commander Guillermo Guillén were able to speak and catch up with Delegate Keam after this morning’s session. It’s always an honor to catch up with Delegate Keam. Mark is not only a dedicated and caring patriot, but he’s also a person I’m grateful to call a friend. I’m thankful he was able to participate at the 77th Session of #VABoysState.
