There is no S.A.L. events planned yet so keep checking in to see if this will change. Sons of the American Legion meetings are

other members.  We are often called upon to help with events and activities so the more members that are willing and available
makes the post a stronger post.
Thank you, Kevin Litvak: SAL Commander   
Commander’s Comments: The last line of our Preamble speaks of our organizations “Comradeship”. Comradeship is often
considered to be a result of some shared participation in a past event or experience. But it is far more than the past, it includes
our everyday activities as we share the good parts as well as the difficult parts of our days. Even now, as we work together for
the good of others, we grow our comradeship.
At Post 572 we have worked to keep our Post open. All the while maintaining mask requirements and social distancing. We
continue to clean, sanitize, and complete required building maintenance and improvements. We have conducted our regular
meetings to complete essential business. Our Legion Family, the Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion, and our AL
Riders, have continued to meet and support the needs of the Post. Our Honor Guard continues to serve our community at
dedications and memorials. We conducted a “Town Hall” meeting with representatives from every group of our Legion family,
where we discussed the dreams and visions for the future of the Jacubic Post. Every one of these events and activities have in
some way helped grow our comradeship.
I am most grateful to everyone who has stepped up to be a part of our survival during today’s restrictions. Without the help of
so many, it would have been difficult to survive.
If you have not been part of our efforts the past few months, please join us. Attend one of our upcoming membership meetings.
There, you can express any ideas or concerns for the benefit of our Post. Remember, the Canteen is open with distancing
restrictions, mask requirements, food specials, monthly drink specials and free individually packed popcorn on Friday nights.
We have added some new members to our Canteen Staff. Please come meet them, share in our comradeship, and welcome
them to our family.

Adjutants Report:  Happy Thanksgiving.  Let us remember to give thanks for our family and friends on this day.  Remember
and pray for those who will spend the day alone, unable to travel because of the pandemic and for those who have no one.  
Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the first official Thanksgiving Holiday on October 3, 1863 to be celebrated on November 26th .  
The story goes that the President had turkey sent to the Union troops and as Washington had done before him that the day be
of celebration, thanks and prayer.

Chaplain’s Corner:  On the 10th of this month we get to wish our Marine veterans a Happy 245th Birthday!
On the 13th of November 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was dedicated.
On the 11th we remember and pray for all of our veterans, especially our MIA’s.
“If you are able, save a place for them inside of you... and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places, they
can no longer go...”. Michael O’Donnell, U.S. Army, Vietnam war.
Happy Thanksgiving! Jim
