Bill Czmyr, a former commander of American Legion Post 15 in the borough and the person who started The American Legion Veterans Housing Inc. (TALVHI) project a decade ago, told the crowd of more than 100 people that the home will give homeless veterans a second chance. It's an important mission, he said, because in the military, you never leave a man behind.
"Somewhere in life, they made a wrong turn, hit a bump or just made a wrong choice," Czmyr said.
"This is our job," he said.

Bill Czmyr said the idea has taken off with veterans groups across the country in the past year. He's already received inquiries from veterans groups as far away as California, Florida and New York City, he said.

"When I started this, I said, 'Well, it's a shot in the dark.' But right now, we're under construction," says Bill Czmyr, project president and longtime Legionnaire. "I never dreamed this was going to happen."
The initiative's beginnings are as grassroots as its goals. A reputed member of Post 15, Czmyr was often asked around town what he and fellow Legionnaires planned to do with the two vacated floors on top of their post building. In 2003, he told someone on a whim that they'd look into converting the space into apartments for veterans.
His seemingly flippant idea gradually picked up momentum, as he got estimates from local contractors for construction costs and assembled a makeshift fundraising crew filled with locals willing to volunteer their time and expertise. They filed for official nonprofit status and began meeting weekly, officially as American Legion Veterans Housing Inc.
"No one ever told me I was crazy, no one ever told me to get out of here," Czmyr says.

"I grew up on a farm where, when the woodstove went out, it was just as cold inside as it was outside," he says.

"Seven years ago, at one of our meetings, we discussed the military creed 'that no comrade is left behind,'" William Czmyr, president of organization and treasurer of Post 15, said in a news release.
