I want to take this opportunity to thank Commander Roberts for giving me the opportunity to be the Sons of The American Legion Americanism Chairman. I also want to thank my committee members for the work that they put in this year. It has been an honor and a privilege for me to be your Americanism chairman.
I want to ask for everyone interested in Americanism and the Community Service Scrapbook judging to come to the convention center at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 24, to Room 203 for the judging of the consolidated reports and 10 a.m. for the judging of the scrapbooks. I hope to see a room full of judges. I thank you also for what you do for the Sons of The American Legion. You all are helping the Sons in some way. It might be by paying your dues on time. It might be by helping at veteran's funerals or putting flags on veteran's graves. There are many ways through the Sons of the American Legion to help. Thanks for all that you do, supporting The Sons of the American Legion programs.
