We are looking forward to sharing with everyone events and services we proudly take part of. In addition, you will also find updates on the legion and current events. We encourage everyone to read it and also check out our all new website designed by our friends at Media Fusion Technologies!

We will continue to strive everyday to continue that work. Lastly, I would like to thank my fellow board members for giving me this opportunity to serve as commander. I look forward to the coming days as we embark on the journey ahead.

May God Bless the legion, its community and may God Bless the USA. Hoorah !!
