Lake Region veterans are hoping to revive the local American Legion chapter tonight (Tuesday). There had been no activity in the Devils Lake chapter in the last three years.

New post commander Brad Haugland says its time for a new generation of veterans to take over. The revamped Legion will work with other veterans groups to help vets and get involved with the local community. Haugland says there were about 45 members in the Devils Lake American Legion during its hiatus, but about 80 vets are interested in joining again. A reopening ceremony will take place this evening.
