Greetings from the Commander

     It was not an easy decision for me to put my name in the hat to take on the responsibility of becoming Commander of our American Legion Post 712. It is an honor that I do not take lightly, and I thank all for their support and well wishes. As Commander I am sure there will many challenges ahead of us which we as a Post 712 will tackle one at a time. We have many experienced members to whom I will look for guidance.

     With the help of our Sergeant-of-Arms, Bill Weikel, the meetings will last about 45 minutes. There will be a forum/Order of Business that will be followed. All Officers will have a copy in hand at the start of the meeting. I urge all veterans to attend on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 pm sharp. 15 veterans are needed to make a quorum for this meeting, so we need your interest!

     I will plan a weekly meeting with the Home Association President as well as a separate weekly meeting with the Adjutant.

     I will also request individual monthly meetings with the Presidents of the Sons, Auxiliary, and Riders.

     We are planning several events to commemorate milestones in the upcoming months. I will be asking for more members to volunteer and get involved as the need arises. Please consider volunteering, especially if you have never volunteered at our Post before. We could use and would really appreciate your help!

     On June 1, 2018, I was honored to be part of an Honor Guard detail with Bill Allen, Tom Bodner, Ed Harmon, Frank Piatek, Don Rottman, Larry Murin, and Craig Kern for students at McClellan Elementary School in Pleasant Hills for a DARE Program.

     On Thursday June 7, 2018, members of AL Post 712 joined ranks with VFW Post 1810 for a service for former Senior Vice Commander of AL Post 712 and former Commander of VFW Post 1810, Alfred “Al” DiLembo, a highly decorated WWII pilot who flew 39 missions over enemy territory.

     Last but not least, I want to take this opportunity to thank Frank Caputo for his leadership this past year.

Respectfully submitted,

Lee Phillips

Commander Elect

American Legion Post 712
