Greetings From Post 10 Auxiliary

Service, Not Self

                                                                     

Greetings,

I was asked as the new incoming President to write a letter to give people an idea of who I am, and what our goals are for this year.  I gave this a great deal of thought.

I come from a very patriotic family, my father was a proud member of our Honor Guard for Post 10. We also enjoyed studying the Civil War together and looking for the graves of the service men from the Civil War.

My Mother is a Pass President of our Unit. She has set a great example which I work every day to uphold.  Her love of God, County, and Family has taught me so much and given me my best Values for life.

To bring the family into a full circle my daughter and granddaughter are both active in our unit.  Dani is our new Sergeant at Arms and Troop Support.  Lily is a Junior and our Poppy Princess 2019.

So when I think of my family I also think of our larger family, the Amercan Legion Family.  I am looking forward to working with the Legion side and helping with the programs when needed, doing as much as we can for the service members, and showing them what a great organization we are.  My hope is when they leave their tour of duty they join our family, to never forget what our Legionnaires were willing to give for our Country.

Thank you.
