MORAN — Bill McAdam joined a select circle Saturday when he became the eighth 60-year member of Jones-Hardy American Legion Post 385 here. 

“It’s quite an accomplishment,” said Gene Gardner, post commander, in a brief ceremony, noting that McAdam probably didn’t anticipate such a tenure soon after the Legion post was chartered in 1947.

McAdam, 81, joined the Air Force in 1951, receiving orders in early 1952 for deployment overseas to fight the Korean War.
