Hello Fellow Legionnaires

I would like to introduce myself, I’m Catherine Buckley a 13 yr. Legionnaire who has transferred to Post #154 over a year ago. I find the Post is very friendly and the ones I have met very welcoming.

I do find our meetings somewhat disappointing with attendance. Like most Post it is the same faces month after month. Then I hear questions as to why somethings don’t get done or we don’t do somethings. Those questions are brought up by the same people who don’t attend meetings.

Granted into day’s world everyone is busy and we seem to be rushing to and from, which makes it hard to remember or fit a monthly meeting into our schedule. But I ask you this, why are you a member? What was your reason to join?

The American Legion was founded on the Four Pillars, with that each Post should make it their responsibility to sponsor one of the programs of the Pillars.

I’m the Historian and Public Relations at our Post. It isn’t possible to do my job if there isn’t involvement. I’m also with Dept’s. Homeless Veterans Task Force and we are having an event soon for it.

Here is a short description of the duties of your officers and it is your responsibility to ensure that they do their jobs that they were entrusted with.

Commander; Overseas committees, Adjutant; is the same as a secretary, 1st Vice Commander; Stands in when the Commander is absent also is Chair of the membership committee and recruits new members, 2nd Vice Commander; social and community involvement,  Finance Officer; making sure we stay on track with our spending and where it goes and comes from. Judge Advocate; to supply professional advice in the conduct of Post business. Service Officer; Assist veterans with information in their time of need.

Legionnaires of the Post; assist and volunteer. If you can only give one hour a month this would help that person who has been there for hours to take a break.

Legionnaires of the Post; Attend meetings and give their input as to what you want your Post to do.

You don’t have to run for an office or volunteer for hours. THIS IS YOUR POST AND IT NEEDS YOU.

Thank you

Catherine Buckley
