American Legion Past National Commander Harry Colmery assembled into one proposition what has been described as the most important social legislation of the 20th century: the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, better known as the GI Bill. On June 22, his contributions to American society will be immortalized with the dedication of Harry Colmery Memorial Park in Topeka, Kan. The dedication ceremony starts at 2 p.m. The park is located one block from the Kansas State Capitol building on South Kansas Avenue. The American Legion's Department of Kansas worked with volunteers and the Colmery family to raise funds, design and construct the memorial park.
