Back in 1951 Penfield area Veterans felt the need for a Veterans Group
in their township. They applied for a Charter in the American Legion as
Braman Post 1229.

Named in Honor of two brother's who served during WW1.
WW1 hit families hard throughout the area.
Perhaps no harder than right here in East Penfield, the home of
Peter D. Braman
and his younger brother
Robert C. Braman
They were two of the nine children of Emma and William Braman.
They grew up on the Braman farm that has been in their family since 1825,
as it still is today.

Both Veteran's were killed in action.
Both paid the ultimate sacrifice for serving our Country.

Their names starred on this plaque posted near the front doors of
East Penfield Baptist Church
