OXFORD — Brian O’Donnell was named commander of Squadron 112, Oxford Sons of the American Legion, during the March meeting.

O’Donnell is the son of the late James J. O’Donnell who served in the U.S. Army Airborne Division during World War II as an aerial gunner on Flying Fortresses stationed in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska.

“My Dad was very proud of his service to the country in WWII, I am proud of his service to our country and I am pleased that I have the opportunity to be a member of the Sons of the American Legion to honor his memory,” said Commander O’Donnell.

“We are looking forwarded to working with Brian,” said American Legion Post 112 Commander Ed Lyons. “Brian has strong ties to the community, excellent leadership skills and will be a great asset to the American Legion Family.”

Brian is an Oxford resident, vice president of Building Solutions for more than 25 years as well as a past code enforcement officer.

Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion exists to honor the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires. Members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. 

Members of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of The American Legion and The Legion Riders comprise the Legion Family, which has a combined national membership of nearly 4.2 million.
