They served their country around the globe as far back as World War II. And on Sunday, disabled veterans from the St. Albans Community Living Center, run by the Department of Veterans Affairs, were guests at the annual Christmas dinner hosted by American Legion Post 1424 in Forest Hills.

Two dozen veterans and a handful of VA caregivers came by the Metropolitan Avenue post to enjoy the meal that included turkey and all the trimmings.

Holiday music and singing also were on the program.

Finally, Santa dropped by from the North Pole to greet each veteran on his nice list — all of them — and to give them each a monetary gift courtesy of the Ladies Auxiliary of Post 1424 that can be spent at the post exchange, or commissary, at the center.

Welcome to the discussion.
