I opened nominations for your Post Officers for 2012 – 2013. The following nominations were made: Commander: NONE, 1st, 2nd, 3rd Vice: NONE, Historian: NONE, Chaplain: Stu Baker, Sgt-at-Arms: Bill Cummins, House Committeemen: Hal Eyerly, John Frenzel. (Hal and John are both Past Commanders, and still help the Post). Here are the Duties/Responsibilities of the 1st Vice Commander: The primary duty of the 1st Vice Commander is membership. It is his/her responsibility to check the accuracy of all membership applications and transfers. The 1st Vice Commander should build up the membership of the Post. He/she is responsible to see that new members and transfers are indoctrinated. The 1st Vice Commander should be familiar with the ceremonies for regular meetings as he/she will be taking over the responsibility of Post Commander in his/her absence. He/she shall be chairperson of the Membership and Publicity (PR) Committee. We have posted a sign-up sheet in the lounge if anyone wants to add their name for an office they would like to run for. Holding office at the Post is not just about filling the position which you are elected for, it’s about volunteering your time and energy to support/help with all of the functions/events held at the Post. We will have nominations again this month and in May before elections. Look at your Membership card and if it has a 2011 on it, please send in your $30.00 to pay for your 2012 Dues. Your dues are what help keep us going in our support of Veterans. Please pass on to other vets. It's official: DD-214 discharge papers are NOW ONLINE. The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214s online: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records. This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his/her DD-214 for employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files. Please support the Lounge, Post, Auxiliary, SAL and Riders. For God and Country Jimmy Lee Martin 1st Vice Commander –Membership is currently at 86%. Our Legion Birthday/St Patrick’s Day/Member Appreciation Day went great. If you missed it - you missed a lot of fun! The Lounge was full and we had plenty of good food and good music. Come in and see what’s next!
