To the editor: I have lived on Oak Island for 20 years, having come south from Buffalo, N.Y., and I would like to say a few words of appreciation to the wonderful people of Nocha White Post 503 American Legion in Calabash.

My good wife of 46 years passed away two years ago after four or five years of ill health.

The last six months she had to endure kidney dialysis, and this brought us to Shallotte for three days a week, three or four hours a day. I had to stay close.

I inquired as to where the American Legion was and was told they just opened a new post in Calabash. For the past two years, the people of the Legion are the best and most caring people that I have met in my 70-some years.

There are so many names I could mention, but it would take a page of your newspaper, so I would just like to say to all of the wonderful people of Nocha White Post 503:

This world would be a better place to live if everyone was like yourselves.
