We have worked hard at changing the culture and atmosphere in the Detachment of California. We have done so with an attitude of service and fun! We have revamped our communication by introducing a state of the art newsletter, PR campaigns that promote the American Legion family, provided leadership and training for our Squadrons, and worked tirelessly in continuing our fundraising efforts to better the lives of our Veterans and Youth. And we have done so by inspiring the FUN in fundraising and enhancing the camaraderie within the Detachment.
I sincerely appreciate all of the efforts each and every one of you have made to make this Detachment the pinnacle example of what happens when a collective heart of service, hard work, and love come together to make our communities a better place. Proving that together we can make the impossible possible and make the lives and future a little brighter for the Veterans we have served, the kids we have lifted up, and the communities we have inspired.
I’m thankful for this Detachment and for each and every one of you, especially during this holiday season. From our family to yours Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
With Love and Blessings —
— For God and Country in Support of the American Legion Family.
