Greetings comrades.

We are now into April 2020. If you did not make 100% by March 31, 2020, now is the time to do a “Buddy Check,” telephone calls, visitation, etc. Lets work toward getting Greetings Comrades:

This has been a very challenging, interesting, educational and rewarding year. Congratulations to 15th District Commander Bruce Carl for being the first district to make 100% in membership. Central area is holding in second place in department. To all area, district and post commanders, thank you for your hard work and efforts in membership. It really paid off. The following post made 100% by 15 May 2020. 7th district (post 34, 15 and 339).

8th district (post 413, 317, 11, 30, 325, 254 and 24). 13th district (post 411, 192 and404). 15th district (post 26, 147, 186, 389, 5, 99, 108, 334, 111, 278, 246, 167, 138 and 139). 16th district (post 275, 158, 273, 79 and 238)

I am very proud of all posts in zone 2. To the post I visited; thanks for your gracious hospitality and sharing your post programs and history. To the post commanders/ adjutants I called by phone; thank you for sharing your post status, programs and activities. You are doing a great job. I encourage all post to keep up the good works.

From March 2020 to present, I am very impressed with the work your posts are doing during these trying times. Even though we do not see each other, I keep up with your activities in the community. Feeding the homeless, those who have lost their jobs, nurses, doctors, etc. Making donations of food, etc. to the food banks. Volunteering and seeing to it that our children and youth are receiving food daily. And the list goes on and on. Even though the post is closed, you continue to carry out the mission of The American Legion as a family.

By now all the CPR’s and department addendums should be in. also, put in for the various department awards. You do the programs and volunteering. Share with others. Continue to work on your membership.

Presently as I write this article, we are facing perils with the virus and fires. If you are any of your members need help contact your post or department. Start with your post and district. We are here for you and with you.

It has been an honor and privilege to work for and with you. If you should need me, remember, just call me.
