Commander’s Comments: The American Legion’s new member oath of obligation includes a pledge to uphold and defend the
Constitution of the United States, it also states that you pledge to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the “community
State and Nation”. Since taking on the role of Commander, I have put a strong emphasis on the service to community. I believe
the community is where it all must start, where new members come from, where events are profit or loss, and to where we can
do the most “Hands on Good” for people. We have initiated many programs and events to get us out in the community, to get
the American Legion in the forefront of our neighbors and community leaders.
One of the most significant events of the year is our “First Responders Appreciation Night”. Having just completed our 4th
annual event, we have cast more positive light on our post and the District 13 American Legion then we could have ever hoped
for. This year we had over 350 attendees, with first responders from 18 different departments with Police and fire chiefs from 8
different departments, including the Sheriff of Cuyahoga County David Schilling. Brett Reistad the American Legion immediate
past national commander was our featured speaker, and in attendance was current department Commander Roger Friend.
Department Auxiliary President Kristen Little and District President Louise Aigner were both in attendance. District Commander
Joe Ruland and wife Donna along with City of Parma Mayor Timothy DeGeeter in attendance for the 3rd year. Parma Council
members Debbie Lime and Alan Divis were also contributors and were in attendance. 8 State representatives and a State
senator contributed by sponsoring a table for 8 first responders and their guests.
Thanks to Elizbeth Robertson (Noreiga) of Fox 8 news, who accompanied her husband Joshua Robertson as he received the
law enforcement officer of the year, we received extensive TV news coverage on channel 8. Overall this was the over top event
of them all. Watch for many postings from the event on our facebook and website pages. For a complete photo album and

Adjutants Report:  For the first time since 1942 the National Executive Committee of The American Legion has changed the
Preamble to the Constitution.  It read; “to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in the Great Wars”, now
reads; “to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in all Wars”.  Have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Chaplain’s Corner: Since we are not physically meeting this month, I wish all of our post members a very pleasant and spiritual
Veterans Day. And here is a prayer for Veterans you can use that day. Or anytime for that matter.
Oh God, Our Heavenly Father, You have blessed us with brave men and women who are willing to defend our freedom. May
Your protection and grace surround them each day. Let Your healing hand be upon those who suffer wounds and injuries. May
those who have made the ultimate sacrifice rest forever in Your Holy Presence. Comfort the families who mourn and are left to
remember the precious lives of their loved ones. Help us to honor and support them. Let us be ever mindful of each sacrifice
made on behalf of the American people by our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, and friends. Amen
Also, Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps! On Nov. 10th.  And please remember to vote on the 8th. Jim

TAPS: The Adjutant reports that Legionnaire Joseph E Fattlar has transferred to Post Everlasting and now reports to the
Commander of us all.
