"I became President in 19, fall of 1980. Shortly thereafter Solidarity Movement started in Poland. Then Legion made a full circle to go back to giving aid to Poland. We started with a $1,000 contribution for their food parcel program. A few months later, they started a medicine bank and we donated 5,000. In August of '81 the Polish Relief Telethon took place and I had the extreme of presenting a $20,000 check towards the aid to Poland."
