Commander George Besse presents past Commander Bob Tulipani with a plaque honoring him for his 50 years of loyal, dedicated service to the American Legion. Tulipani was the commander for 18 years, and was the principal cause for the growth of Everett Ray Seymour Post 78. ‘Bob should not only be recognized for his service to his country, the American Legion, but to the community as well,’ said Besse.
