Message from the Post Commander, Jeff Meurer, CSM, US Army (Ret)
A heartfelt thank you to each and every Post 572 Legionnaire that helped plan and direct the annual Memorial Day Weekend Golf Tournament...AND the tireless efforts and support of the Tom Green County All Veterans Council and their associated volunteer groups. Because of all of you, the San Angelo community got a taste of true patriotism. It was both a sad and joyful opening ceremony as we recalled the real purpose of Memorial Day...and both witnessed and participated in remembrance ceremonies and the outpouring of local support for veterans and veterans programs. Be sure and take a look at all the pictures uploaded on this website.
June will be another busy and fun-filled month as we celebrate Flag Day on Tuesday, June 14th. Please review the National commander's comments and click on the White House Proclamation link provided in our homepage slide show. Let's all try to remember to Pause for the Pledge at 7 p.m. EDT and join in this national tradition. Please click this webpage link The Legion Flag Information Webpage for more information. I'd like to make a special Shout Out to the East Angelo Lions Club in recognition of their U.S. Flag Project as they continue to place flags throughout our community on nine patriotic holidays...including Flag Day 2022.
The Post 572-sponsored Chili Cookoff is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th at the Riverside Golf Course. WE NEED CHILI JUDGES! Please review the Chili Cookoff Flyer and registration form provided on this website. Contact Don Bunnell directly at 325 650-0760.
Happy Father's Day, Sunday, June 19th. Thank you to all the "Dads" out there for your continued interest and support in our national, state, and local Legion programs.
Remember, we are Veterans Strengthening America.
