Hello Spirit of Freedom, Post # 76 Comrades,

I want to first thank you all for giving me the opportunity and honor to be your Post # 76 Commander. This is an honor I did not expect. I am following in the steps of several of our Past Commanders and I can only hope to successfully continue with just a portion of the work that was started by them.

As your new Commander, I feel fortunate to have such an Outstanding group of fellow Officers to work with. I believe we are well on the way to making Post #76, the premier Post in the Department of Nevada. With their combined talents and all of your suggestions, input and participation, we have a very bright future.

Participation! I think this is going to be a word you all will hear often. We are at a very important juncture with our American Legion. We have seen many changes, some good, others not. We must work together, stay focused, remain united, and one way to do this is by your participation. Please take a few hours and volunteer when asked for various projects. We have so many opportunities and programs, we are in need of everyone to pitch in and help. We must remember, Veterans helping Veterans, and their families. I know we can count on your help. Again thank you all for your support and if you see something that needs addressed, don't hesitate to speak up.

The annual election and installation of Post 76 officers will be held at the General meeting on Sunday, 15 April 2018. The Executive Board will nominate a person for each elected office (Commander, 1st Vice Commander, 2nd Vice Commander, Sergeant-at-Arms, and one Director), and this slate will be brought before the Post 76 membership for a vote by the membership. Nominations are also accepted from the floor. There are 7 elected officers, but Directors serve a three-year term, so only one is up for election each year.

The Post 76 General Meeting is your connection to American Legion happenings around the Las Vegas Valley. Here you can rub elbows with veterans from every US Military Service and enjoy their camaraderie, meet your Veterans Service Officers, get an update on Veterans benefits and support from our monthly Guest Speaker Program, learn what activities Post 76 is getting involved with, and have a tasty snack and drink afterwards. It’s also where you can make suggestions to help us to provide you the kind of meeting and activities that will make you feel good about paying your annual dues. Come to the meetings every 3rd Sunday of the month at the Durango Hills YMCA, at 1:30 PM, and you’ll be glad you did.

Your Post 76 Adjutant is the person to whom you can turn for answers on any questions you may have regarding your membership status, or any other issues, concerns, or suggestions that you have with Post 76 operations. He is the person who can get you straight answers and help make your membership in Post 76 a more rewarding experience.
