Commander's Message

POST 848

May we wish all members a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will be starting back up with our newsletter and calendar. We are sorry that we had not been sending out our newsletter. Members please come on out for January General Meeting January 6, 2018 starting at 10:00 a.m. We are also holding elections for our Post Officers. There have been issues that are now being repaired. It is important for all of us to work together to keep our Post in a positive way. We thank all of you who have supported your Post for so many years. Letís make 2018 a great year for Post 848 and all members.

We thank the Womenís Auxiliary for all the great work and support that they give our post, we are so proud of these women. We say thank you for all you do.

The Sons of the American Legion are always ready to promote Post 848 and we thank them so very much. You guys keep the great work going.

Legion Riders are also a great group. They go out and do great community work. They promote good will in our community. Many thanks Riders.

And to all the volunteers a big thanks to all of you who step up to the plate to promote our Post 848. As your officers we do understand this and say thank you.

As a Past Commander of Post 848 and Past District Commander of District 21, I have taken the helm until the officers are elected and installed for Post 848. I will say this when you nominate someone for an officerís position you must remember they are going to take a position that is truly important to your post. They need to know what they are being elected for and understand the protocol of the position. This is why many posts have issues and problems.

May all of you be blessed. Please come on out and support your dinners and have some fun while you are here.

Commander: Robert L. Sigala
For God and Country

Who We Are:

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, war-time veteranís organization, devoted to mutual helpfulness.  It is a not-for-profit community-service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women, in nearly 15,000 American Legion posts worldwide.

The American Legion Auxiliary was formed to aid the American Legion in carrying out the great program of peacetime service to America to which the American Legion is dedicated. All of our activities are designed to promote the work of the American Legion and to help the American Legion reach its objectives. Our members serve side by side with the members of the American Legion in a spirit of unselfish devotion to the well being of the American republic.

The Sons Of The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organized program within The American Legion. The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion. Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.

American Legion Riders - Simply an enjoyable post activity now a commission of the Department of California for Legionnaires, Auxiliary members, and SAL members thru out the state who enjoy motorcycle riding--and an ideal way to support The American Legion's programs. 

Since motorcycle riding is becoming a popular free time and social activity, Posts and Departments can benefit from the growing popularity of The American Legion Riders (ALR) as a way to connect and communicate across the Nation. 

As the membership of the ALR is a very diverse group, so are the programs that they are involved in. By allowing each American Legion Rider Chapter to give their members the ability to manage their programs at the Post level, the program has been allowed to grow. Today there exist nearly 100 Legion Rider programs in more than 32 states, and more are organizing each year. The types of things that these groups are doing are far too many to mention in this space, but here are a few examples:

The recognition and acceptance of ALR groups by local communities has been remarkable. The American Legion Riders in Garden City, Michigan was even honored by the local city council, when they drafted a resolution declaring the American Legion Riders post as a valuable asset to the community. Remember: Motorcyclists can be a very dedicated group of people. When they are also American Legion Family members, you create a win/win situation for your post and community.
