Ken Gene Hasby served his country on board a navy ship early in his life but it hasn’t been until recently that the New Town resident has seen the personal effects of war.
Through his work with the North Dakota American Legion, Hasby has been fortunate enough to help those soldiers who have difficulty dealing with the transition back into civilian life.
After the state convention last week, Hasby will be able to help even more soldiers after being appointed as the West Region Vice Commander of the North Dakota American Legion.
Hasby was part of the navy during his career and in Vietnam for two years. He came back in 1969 and has been involved with the American Legion ever since.
About five years ago Hasby was able to retire and since then he has been actively involved in the American Legion. He started out as a Chaplin and over the years he has been a Sargent at Arms, Vice Commander and Commander at his local Beck Sherven Post 290 in New Town working his way through the ranks and in charge of as many as 12 posts in western North Dakota.
