Memorial day 2021
Thank you all for joining us this Memorial Day as we paid respects to those no longer with us and further cemented our comradeship together. Memorial Day always requires a significant amount of coordination and teamwork to pull off, and this year, our first year back after the pandemic, certainly had its challenges. From installing the Avenue of Flags at Rosehill, to coordinating last-minute invites, to preparing speeches and commemorations, to our honor guard who cleaned, polished and practiced to ensure we could perform a ceremonial rifle volley, to our bartenders and volunteers who made sure the Post was stocked, cleaned, and ready to accept visitors, and proudly, to our friend, Commander Marcos Torres of Post 939, who had to leave a 100lbs pig roast in a hurry because his newborn son decided Memorial Day was the day he wanted to be born, and become the newest member of the Legion family.
It took the entire team to pull off such a great community event and I look forward to many more years together with the family that we've built.

We will continue to build our post and maintain the traditions and values that we hold dear. Dedication to our veterans, our communities, to democracy, and to a greater sense of civic unity. We hope you'll plan to join us next year as well. Thank you all for all the work you do to make this Post a special part of The American Legion and Chicago.
Yours in Comradeship,
Brent M. Webb
