To all members of The American Legion Post 320, thank you. I am honored to be your Commander and to lead our Post.
I am grateful for the hard work or previous Commanders to establish our Post as an essential Veterans Organization in the county, and I will continue with that work to remain relevant and become a resource for all Spotsylvania County Veterans and their families. As Veterans we have an opportunity to continue our service by coming to the aid of fellow Veterans, both retired and active duty, by caring for the families of our Veterans, and by contributing to our community in the ways of volunteering, servicing, and donating.
As I begin my Commander’s tour for Post 320, I want to briefly share with you my Commander’s Intent supporting my vision for the Post’s continued recovery from the COVID Pandemic affects. My vision is for Post 320 to become relevant again to the Spotsylvania Communities, and to do that I intend to focus on three key areas:
1. The Legion Family
2. The Post Home
3. Outreach to Our Local Communities
Additionally, I will meet with every member of the Post by hosting Commander’s Hours once or twice each month.
Beginning on the first and last Monday of each month, except holidays, I will open the Club Room from 1830-2030 to meet with any and all members of the Post who want to discuss challenges, issues, needs, and concerns (CINCs) with the Post. I will ask our House Manager to advertise Commander’s Hours for each night on our sign in front of the Post as a reminder. My first Commander’s Hours will be Monday, 12 July 2021 from 1830-2030.
If you would like to know more about how I am going to implement and achieve the goals associated with this guidance, please plan to attend our monthly membership meetings. If you have not attended in a while, I remind you that we meet each first Tuesday of the month beginning at 1900 with Organization updates and social time followed by the Post meeting at 1930. Please bring a member with you or bring a new member.
For the members reading this message who have not been to the Post recently for one reason or another, please consider coming back to the Post to learn of the changes coming and how to be part of those changes. Share the word with members and non-members that American Legion Post 320 is active and serving once more.
