Commander’s Comments: On Wednesday July 19, over 30 American Legion Riders motorcycles led by a Parma Police Patrol
car with flashers flashing and followed by a black Lincoln Sedan made their way down W. Ridgewood and into the American
Legion post parking lot. The procession was met by 50 to 60 flag waving legion members and friends. Three of the post
uniformed honor guard opened the door to the Sedan and escorted a visibly emotional Mike Zaderecky, a 99-year-old WWII
Vet who has been a 73-year continuous member of post 572, in addition he just happened to be the post’s first elected
Commander back in 1946. It was a very emotional evening for everyone especially Mike. This is what the American Legion is
all about. Never forgetting our veterans, never missing an opportunity to pay tribute, never missing the experience of bringing
together the feeling of camaraderie once felt by war time buddies. Mike said, “he couldn’t figure out what was going on when a
limo picked him up and he got a police and motorcycle escort, after all said Mike, I was only a PFC”. Mike might have only
been a PFC and stand only 5ft 5inches, but he is a big man, a man who has continued to serve his country long after his
discharge by staying an active member of the Great Organization the American Legion.

2nd Vice Commander:  I apologize for incorrect information I posted in the last newsletter. The AL Post 572 Family Picnic on
August 13 is from noon to 6pm at St. Salva Picnic Grove - cost is: Adults $2, youths ages 6 and up is $1, those under 6 are
free. I have . signup sheet in the Canteen, behind the bar, to signup children. This is so we can get door prizes for them. To
date only 2 children are signed up. Cut-off for signup is the 5th, but It probably won't be until the 9th before I get the list. I also
need volunteers to help and that signup sheet is posted on the board. We plan on meeting at the Post Sunday morning 9am
to load up, and start moving items to the picnic area, and then pack up to bring things back in the evening. Feel free to
contact me if you have any questions. Thank you, John Rader email: secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com

Chaplains Corner: Labor Day usually means the unofficial end of summer and getting ready to do our autumn chores. In
1894, Congress declared the first Monday of September as Labor Day and is celebrated in every state of the Union, including
the District of Columbia. Work should not be looked at as just a job, but a blessing from God. Before the fall of man, work was
part of God’s creation; “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” (Genesis
2:15 NIV). The word “put” comes from the Hebrew root word meaning “to rest”. When we do our job well, we can find this “rest”
in our souls. We should not just do our job, but do our work with and for God. Whether we work for an employer, at home or
for ourselves, we should thank God for the opportunity to do our job and do our chosen occupation to the best of our abilities.
God’s blessing to all!!!
