The officers and members of Nutley American Legion Post, Unit and Squadron 70 extend our deep and sincere sympathies to as the family and friends of Alvin Baxter-Green. Alvin has been a member of our Post for more than 71 years and his smile and devotion to helping others will be sorely missed by all. The timing of his passing is difficult during this holiday season especially since four days earlier the Post once again hosted the Nutley Fire Department’s rest stop for Santa. A true member of the Greatest Generation, we all thank Alvin for his service to the community, state and Nation. Rest assured that we will honor Alvin during ceremonies at our American Legion State Convention in June and will inscribe his name in the convention book as a reminder of his service. God bless and care for each and every one of you.
