Thank you for serving!

I am very proud to announce that we have successfully reached our goal to raise enough money to build our long-sought-after Greendale Veterans Memorial. It is dedicated to Past, Present and Future members of our armed forces. Please read our most recent press release on the subject found on the home page of this website.

By the time you read this article, the 4th of July will be over and the State Convention in full swing. We have a lot to be thankful for. Our Post will pick up several awards. These include the Burnes Award, Pendill Award, All Time High, an award for National Distinguished Service; the Post Excellence Award, and I think one more. We also received a $100.00 check for meeting the State Commander's Challenge. That leaves us with a lot to be proud of.

This coming year will be the 100th Anniversary of The American Legion. As events begin to unveil, be the first to know everything by attending our general membership meetings. You'll know faster before it goes to print.

As events pop up, we as a veteran organization, need to keep the ship tight by being informed and ready to move on a lot of separate issues. In a few months, voting time will be here quicker than you think. Make sure that whoever you support, please do not wear any veteran cover. Our organizations try to stay neutral. But, as you know, something happens to overturn the apple cart and it creates a situation. Please use your head before you act.

I'd like to thank all of you for this past year. It's really been a hum dinger!

Until next month...
