Carmin Brittain is a current member of American Legion Auxiliary Glenarden Unit 275. She has been a member of Unit 275 since 2014. Her eligibility is through her father Richard Sheffey, a Vietnam Veteran. In 1965 her dad joined the United States Navy at the age of 18 and served as a Yeoman aboard the USS Southerland (DD-743). During his time in the Navy, he was stationed in Phoenix AZ, Adak, Alaska and completed one tour in Vietnam in a combat unit with the Marine Corps. Carmin's dad was honorably as an E-5 in 1968 and returned to Cleveland, Ohio where he raised four children and had a 30-year career in public transportation with the Regional Transportation Authority. Carmin's mother Bobbie Sheffey, a registered nurse for over 30 years and was active in the community health division of Huron Road Hospital before retiring and starting a second career at Candlewood Nursing Home. It was through watching her action in the community of East Cleveland, Ohio that Carmin learned the value of giving back and remaining active through community service. Carmin's mother is a proud member of Glenarden Unit 275. Carmin is also the mother of four adult daughters, who are also members of the Glenarden Unit 275.
In addition to being an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Carmin is an active member of Just Us Social and Civic Club, a nonprofit group consisting of military connect members who raise money for scholarships for youth and community outreach. In her spare time Carmin loves to crochet and craft.
Carmin is here to fully support our veterans, active-duty Military, their families, and the community. She enjoys working with all the members of American Legion Auxiliary Department of Maryland and the Legion Family.
