REMEMBERING 9/11 - Fourteen years ago on September11, 2001 terrorists attacked our great nation and the War on Terrorism began.
The following year, the National Executive Committee of the American Legion passed a resolution affirming its support and encouraged all Legion members, Posts, and Departments to honor the victims of 9-11 by "planning and executing an appropriate annual patriotic or memorializing event..."
It took us awhile but last year Hollywood Post 43 held its first 9-11 remembrance event. It was a huge success thanks to the hard work of Post 43 Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary. Envisioned as an annual event, I am happy to report that we will once again be having a breakfast honoring those who gave their lives on that awful day.
So mark your calendars for the morning of Friday, Sept.11 when our Legion family will gather together in solemn tribute.
While the event is free, donations will be gratefully accepted for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund (http://www.legion.org/scholarships/legacy) which provides educational financial assistance for the children of military personnel who died on or after Sept. 11, 2001.
If you wish to attend the breakfast and/or make a donation please call the office at 1 (323) 851-3030. Reservations are being requested since seating will be extremely limited due to the large number of city and country officials and first responders who are expected to attend.
And always remember - Legionnaires Lead the Way!
We need short films made by Legionnaires, to showcase during our monthly Movie Nights. Doesn't matter when you made the film, and it doesn't matter if the content is veteran-related: it can be about ANY (tasteful) subject that you would be proud to show to your fellow Legion Members during Movie Night. We'd like to keep the films to 10 minutes or less, but if your short is a little longer, we'll still accept it. Multiple submissions are more than welcome, and this is also open to Sons or Auxiliary, though ideally the film you submit has a veteran cast or crew member that had a significant role in the film), but that's not necessarily a deal breaker since we're all family and we want to support one another.
Obviously none of this is for profit, the only purpose is to make an already entertaining night, potentially more meaningful, by showcasing some of our own work. Submitting does not guarantee that your short will be shown. If it is selected for viewing, the short film will be shown during a Movie Night, before and after each feature showing (so four times in the night).
Hollywood Post 43 was well represented at the 1st Annual 10,000 Strong Veterans Summit held at Bob Hope Patriotic Hall and the LA Trade Tech College on July 14. Shown here manning the Post 43 table are (left to right) Brian Binkley, Michael Hjelmstad, Tim Shaner, Don Schilling and Danny Roberts. Four potential new members were signed up during the event along with a dozen or so other veterans who were invited to come attend one of our monthly meetings.
As a California Commissioned Notary Public since 1967, Post 43 Auxiliary founder and member Olivia Headley is an official of integrity appointed by the California Secretary of State to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.
Pursuant to Government Code section 6107, no fee may be charged to a United States military veteran for notarization of an application or a claim for a pension, allotment, allowance, compensation, insurance, or any other veteran's benefit.
