IMPERIAL — If there were an official ambassador of veterans causes in the Imperial Valley, that person would likely have a hard time keeping up with the person who’s managed to become, more or less, the unofficial one in recent years.

That would be Tracy Rascoe, junior past deputy vice commander for California’s American Legion Area 5 and former commander of El Centro’s American Legion Post 25. Over the years, Rascoe has been a tireless advocate of veterans and patriotic causes.
