Message from the Post Commander, Kristie Young, SFC, US Army (Ret)
My Fellow Legionnaires,
Happy holidays! I hope you all had the opportunity to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends and to reflect on the year that has passed. As the holiday season gets into full swing, please take the time reach out to our fellow veterans in the community and beyond. Remember, it only takes a moment to BE THE ONE. You never know when you will make the biggest difference in another person’s life so reach out and connect with those around you. If you have people that you only interact with on Facebook or other social media, take the time to do more than just comment on a photo or posting. Message them directly and let them know that they are on your mind. Better yet, try to give them a call. A little bit of your time can be a lifeline to someone who is struggling.
The next month will be busy with remembrances and holiday events. Once again, we will be assisting with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign by ringing the bells in front of the Pharmacy entrance of the Sherwood Way Walmart Supercenter (5501 Sherwood Way) on 16 December from 10a – 5p. Half of all donations collected by Veterans Service Organizations will be put towards veterans’ assistance by the Salvation Army! If you didn’t volunteer to ring the bells, please stop by and drop a donation in the kettle. Every little bit counts!
Take care of yourselves and your families as we close out the final month of 2023. I wish everyone peace and joy throughout the rest of this year and into the next.
Commander, Smith-Bryant Post 572
P.S. Our next monthly meeting will be 20 January 2024 @ 1000 at the Elks Lodge!
