Commander’s Comments: June is the month that begins the new American Legion Membership year. The general
Membership meeting on June 10 will see our new Officers, executive board members and delegates officially be sworn-in to
serve during the 2019/2020 membership year. Quite frankly it was very disappointing to see so few members willing to step up
and take a leadership role. We need more participation. It is a privilege to serve and it is vital to the future of our post. There
are still appointed positions open for this upcoming membership year. Historian, Media and Public Relations to name just two
that are very important. We encourage you all to attend this special meeting to show your officers your appreciation and give
them a big welcome.
On another note, June 14 is Flag Day, and we have a traditional Flag Day ceremony in the upper parking lot at the post.
Ceremony will begin at 6:00pm…it would be nice to see a great turnout for this event.
Flag Day is celebrated every year on 14 June to commemorate the date on which the flag of the United States was first raised.
The earliest reference to a flag day being marked in America was in 1861, when the city of Hartford, Connecticut, is recorded
as having held a “programme of patriotic order” on 14 June.
Both President Wilson, in 1916, and President Coolidge, in 1927, issued proclamations asking for June 14 to be observed as
the National Flag Day. But it wasn’t until August 3, 1949, that Congress approved the national observance, and President Harry
Truman signed it into law. Let’s fill the parking lot at 6:00 on June 14 and show respect to our flag.

1st Vice Commander:  For those who have yet to renew for 2019 you are running out of time!  Believe it or not the 2020
membership drive begins on July 1st.  If you wish to keep your continuous membership years going you can still renew for
2019.  Our membership has fallen off, but we can still make a comeback.  Currently the U.S. Senate has a bill in committee to
change our membership eligibility it is called the Legion Act S.504.  If passed those who have not been eligible will be able to
join The American Legion if they have been honorably discharged and served at least one day on federal active military duty.  
Welcome the newest Legionnaire to our Post,
Marvin Weber.

2nd Vice Commander: A special recognition goes out to our Honor Guard and Legion Riders for their involvement in Valley
Forge's Vietnam Veteran's Memorial ceremony. Flag Day proudly fly your US Flag. We will also have a Flag Retirement
Ceremony in the Post parking lot on June 14th at 6pm, this is event is open to the public. Legion Riders' Torpedo Run is June
15th, see fliers in the Canteen. Our Annual Post Family Picnic will be on Sunday August 11th from noon until 6pm. I will be
posting a Children signup sheet behind the bar for children and grandchildren of members (2019 membership dues must be
paid). I will also post a signup sheet for volunteers on the bulletin board. More information will follow and look for fliers to be
distributed in the Canteen. if you have any questions please contact me at: 216-470-2579 after 7pm or email:
secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader

Chaplain’s Corner: Last month on Memorial Day, we honored all veterans who have passed from this life.  Let us all now think
of those that have been left behind including the disabled, the distressed, the widows and the orphans.  Let us pray for them,
ourselves and this great land we live in, that tomorrow will always be greater than yesterday and that we can make a difference
with our love and devotion to our GOD, our family, our country and to all humanity.


TAPS: The Adjutant reports that Legionnaire Norm P Washington has transferred to Post Everlasting and now reports to the
