St. C. Legion buys Vietnam-made tables, upsets members

Updated: Friday, June 27 2014, 05:58 PM EDT
BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio -- A Vietnam Veteran made quite a statement to make about his local American Legion post.
Warren Ellis protested his legion post (159 in St. Clairsville) because he found out the recently purchased tables they bought for an event were made in Vietnam.
“It's very simple, it's American Legion,” he said. “Buy American products."
Ellis was so upset, he even turned in his legion card.
Acting Commander Laney Shanks says it was an oversight, and they would've returned the tables if they hadn't already made modifications.
She says it wasn't done intentionally.
They have apologized to their members and promised to do better.
