COMMANDER'S NOTES: September 2020
Our Legion has a Kiosk, which we have been using to put Veteran's Military histories on. By going to the web site www.amlegionpost662vetsmemorial.com you will be able to access this web site from anywhere each month and find Legion News Letter and Legion Upcoming events. You will also be able to access the Veteran"s History and other military information there. I encourage you to go to this Web site and view it.
UPCOMIING EVENTS: We did not have our Flag Retirement Ceremony on June 14th due to current conditions.
On September 11th at 7pm, which is a Friday, at the Freedom Wall in South Sioux City, Nebraska, our Legion along with Legions from South Sioux, Dakota City, Jackson, Homer and North Sioux along with FIRE DEPARTMENTS from Dakota City, Jackson, Homer, Emerson/Hubbard, North Sioux, South Sioux City, Ponca, Sergeant Bluff, and Sioux City will combine and do a Flag Retirement Ceremony along with the Fireman's Last call.
The Sgt Bluff Legion will be doing the Firing Squad and assist with the Taps. I have been to this event for the past 4 years and it is a great event. I highly encourage you to attend.
There WILL NOT BE BLEACHERS, please bring your Lawn chairs, and Masks are encouraged. This is a outside event and when the Flags are lighted it is almost dusk and quit a site. Social Distancing is encouraged. There is a lot of room over there since this is a 55 acre site.
As always help will be needed to hang Flags for the Ceremony. We will be at the Freedom Wall in South Sioux starting at 12:30 on September 11th. If you have time please stop and help us hang the Flags for the 7pm Ceremony. When the Flyer for the event comes out it will be posted around and we will E-Mail it along with being on the Kiosk.
Everyone is invited to attend. If your veteran’s organization would like to bring your colors
you are welcome to do so.
IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS COME TO OUR LEGION MEETING
ON SEPTEMBER 8TH.
Jim Kolls, Commander
