ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING — The American Legion Auxiliary Archie Hay Unit 24 celebrated Veterans Day again this year by surprising a lucky family with a special gift basket. This year, they had to wait just a few extra days as the first baby born since Veterans Day was in the early morning on Sunday, November 13th at the Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County. This year’s gift basket included a handmade quilt and crocheted jacket, a baby bathtub, bottles, books, rattles, a custom crocheted teddy bear, and more.

The lucky recipients of the baby basket were Danae Gomez and Brodie McJunkin. They welcomed baby Weston Leo, who was named after his grandpa, a Navy Veteran.

“This is one of our favorite activities that the Auxiliary does. We have a lot of fun putting this basket together to celebrate the first baby born on Veterans Day, or in little Weston’s case, the first baby born after Veterans Day,” said Gina Dusel, Auxiliary Past Department of Wyoming President.
