Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I now know the meaning of the Legion family. After my husband passed away everyone has been so kind and understanding and I want to thank my Legion family for being there for me. Thank you so much for the beautiful plant that you gave me. I brought it to the office because I have dogs and they would probably get into it, but it looks lovely at the office and brings happiness to the office.

I am going to try and do the best that I can from here on and hope that everyone will help me to understand the great job that I have taken as Department Secretary. I learned a lot from the national convention and hope to put some of that knowledge into working plans so that we can grow the Auxiliary.

I know that most of the units think that they are dying and that no one wants to take over, but have you asked those younger people if they are willing to help make sure that our veterans have everything that they need. Is there a way to bring our message to the communities that we live in. Can we become better teachers to the future generation, can we help those veterans in our communities, can we do one thing that will make our community a better community. Sometimes the little things are more greatly appreciated than if we spend a lot of time and do a lot of things that we think are helpful but our heart is not in it. Let’s give our hearts to the concept of helping our communities.


Shirley Montgomery

Department Secretary
