Greetings fellow Legionnaires,

I would like to start off my first article for Legion Link by thanking you for your support and well wishes for the upcoming Legion year. Your words of encouragement mean a great deal, they truly do.

Now…, down to business!

As your Historian, I truly believe in communication. I promised you I would do the windshield time and try to visit as many Posts over the course of the next year as time would allow. So this is what I am asking of Post, District and Area Commanders. If you are having a special event in your Area, District or at your Post that you would like me to visit please let me know. My personal contact information is

EMAIL: 16history@gmail.com

PHONE: 727-239-3999

I also promised that I would work on a NEW curriculum for the Historian class being taught at Fall Conference and Convention. I would appreciate any input as to what areas you would like to see covered and taught. Please feel free to drop me a note via email.

Until next month…

Edward Lewis
Department Historian
