Before the installation ceremony, Commander Devell Durham read a newspaper article to the audience dated December 1965. The article reflected on the dedication of the Legion building at the current location on Old US 70, where Allen was District 14 Vice Commander. Allen was in attendance of that ceremony 50 years ago.
