Officer Jeremy Charron Law Enforcement American Legion Post 122 is unique in New Hampshire. Our members are both veterans and law enforcement officers, past and present.
Jeremy Charron, our post's namesake, was a police officer in Epsom, NH when he was tragically gunned down during a vehicle investigation. During the course of the encounter he showed exceptional dedication and courage, above and beyond the call of duty. After being shot from ambush, he continued to return fire at his assailants until heÂ succumbed to his fatal wounds. It is with great pride and honor that this post carries his name, a tribute to an exceptional young man and promising career cut short.
