In 1985, the Hispanic community decided to dedicate American Legion Post 1928 in the honor of Gabriel A. Rodriguez who served in military during Vietnam but later took his own life due to untreated PTSD. The community has always remembered Gabriel as a kindhearted community driven man who was suffering from untreated PTSD. At this time, the military did not properly support veterans suffering from this illness and many took their lives as a consequence. The American Legion was also where the Boy Scouts of America held their meetings and the venue was open to the community for special events.
