Message from the Post Commander, Kristie Young, SFC, US Army (Ret)

 

 

Legionnaires,

This year marks the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion, 6 June 1944. As the number of veterans in our ranks from this greatest generation gets smaller and smaller, it falls to us to ensure their sacrifices to ensure our future are remembered and honored. San Angelo will be holding a Ground Breaking Ceremony on a new WWII Veterans Memorial on the Concho River on Thursday, 6 Jun @ 10am across from the McNease Convention Center on Rio Concho Drive. If you are able to attend, this would be a great way to honor these veterans. Also, at the link below, you can find a 12-part video series and podcast created by the World War II Foundation in cooperation with Stars and Stripes to help tell the stories of those who lived through the events of that day.

On a personal note, having completed my first year as Post Commander, I want to say a heartfelt “Thank you” to everyone who has supported and encouraged me throughout this year. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for our Post as we continue to grow. We have a solid core of members who go above and beyond to make sure every event we hold or participate in is successful. Now we need to reach out to encourage ALL our members to join in the fun! With the variety of upcoming events for the rest of the year, there’s sure to be something to engage everyone. Please take a look at our Events Calendar and Community Events on the website to find out what our Post is doing in the community. A great start for the year would be to see as many of you as possible at our June meeting for the swearing-in of our new officers. Just a reminder that we will be meeting on 22 June, the fourth Saturday, due to an Elks Lodge event on 15 June.

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting!

 

Commander, Smith-Bryant Post 572
