I hope our entire Fred Brock family had a very enjoyable and safe holiday season.  As we embark on a new membership year, please take some time with the members of our post, friends and family. Resolve to be more active in our American Legion programs (Veterans Affair; Children & Youth; National Defense; & Americanism).  Come by and visit your post and participate in our community activities.  We accomplished much in 2018. We [1] honored veterans with Memorial & Veteran’s Day ceremonies; [2] hosted shoes drive; [3] provided Thanksgiving dinner food donations; [4] raised $7,000 for our scholarship program; [5] hosted Children & Youth Christmas party; [6] sent six (6) high school juniors  to our flagship Boys State program; [7] sponsored and hosted portions of the Ms. Black San Antonio Pageant; [8] participated in the Operation Comfort Warrior and [9] reached 100% membership and an ALL-TIME HIGH (348) after 72 years! The list goes on and on!!  Let’s keep up the good work!

Commander Comments - March/April 2019

 

I hope all is well with the entire Fred Brock family as we continue our efforts to make Post 828 the premier American Legion Post in the 20th District.  We are working on plans to expand our post and create a larger cantina area for our members.  We raised the bar pretty high last year by reaching our highest membership level at 346.  We have work to do to achieve our goal for this membership year. Retaining our members and recruiting new members is the job of all members of the American Legion Family.  Please take some time with the members of our post, friends and family. Resolve to be more active in our American Legion programs (Veterans Affair; Children & Youth; National Defense; & Americanism).  Come by and visit your post and participate in our community activities. All these things contribute to maintaining strong membership numbers.  There is strength in numbers!  The more members we have the more we can do to support veterans and the local community.  Let’s keep up the good work!
