CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: Veterans in Windham have a new home. A former police station and preschool that stood vacant for many years was celebrated last Saturday, May 1st. as the new home of the Windham American Legion Wilbur E. Tarbell Post 109.

The building at 21 Haverhill Road was officially dedicated with a ribbon-cutting event and ceremony, honoring not only the veterans of past and present, but also the life and legacy of Tarbell. The sailor was lost at sea in 1944 while serving aboard a submarine, the U.S.S. Scorpion (SS-278). He is the only Windham casualty of World War II.

The Legion was officially named in Tarbell’s honor when it was incorporated in May 1956. 5/01/2021
