Hillsdale Post 162 Donates to MCL of Lakeland

Legionnaires at the March 2 , 2016 , regular meeting of Post 162  a donation of $ 2000.00 was made to the Marine Corp League Lakeland Detachment 722 Oakland, New Jersey toward the cost of a robotic power standup chair for legion member Visnu Gonzalez.

Visnu was hit by 2 snipers bullets in his back during his second tour of duty in Iraq that has left him a paraplegic.  This robotic chair will enable him to stand up a couple of hours a day which should improve his overall health problems.
