Detachment Commander: Let’s make it happen

By John Weiss

Hello, Minnesota American Legion Family, my name is John Weiss. I was elected Detachment of Minnesota commander of the Sons of The American Legion at our convention at Anoka Post 102 on June 24.

I am honored to have been chosen to lead this great organization. My theme for the year is “Honoring the Past while Moving Forward.”

I have chosen two worthy foundations for my projects. The first is the American Legion Veterans & Children’s Foundation. The second one is the Minnesota Veterans Assistance Fund (aka Minnesota American Legion Foundation Fund 85).

The Veterans Assistance Fund is truly in dire need of our support. It is administered by the Department of Minnesota American Legion and its aim is to give grant funding to our Minnesota veterans in need. So I hope you will be generous with your support.

Once again, I am honored to have been chosen to be the Detachment of Minnesota Sons of the American Legion commander, and I will strive to do the best job that I possibly can.

Yours in Service for God and Country,

John Weiss of St Paul Arcade-Phalen Squadron 577 is the commander of the Detachment of Minnesota for the Sons of The American Legion.
