Santa presents a disabled veteran with a cash gift that can be spent at the PX at the veterans home in St. Albans.
St. Nick stops to thank the volunteers from the Post and Auxiliary who made the dinner possible.
The annual Christmas dinner for disabled veterans, thrown by American Legion Post 1424 in Forest Hills, would not have been complete without a surprise visit from Santa Claus.
Dessert featured coffee and a cake, right, expressing the gratitude of a community and a country. The veterans also joined their hosts in enjoying holiday cheer that included music and the singing of Christmas carols and other holiday songs.
