CHARM CITY HERE I COME! This month the 97th National American Legion Convention is being held in Baltimore, Maryland. Also known as "Charm City", Baltimore is where I grew up.
My dad, Benjamin S. Schilling, Jr. was a World War II veteran and was the Commander of his B&O American Legion Post in the 1960s. So this will be a pilgrimage of sorts back to my Legion roots. I'm pretty excited because there'll be lots of things to see and do. Fort McHenry, home of the "Star Spangled Banner" is a must see. Other activities will include American Legion Family Night at Camden Yards where the Baltimore Orioles reign supreme. There also be dinner cruise around Baltimore harbor where my mother, also a World War II veteran, was a Coastie in the Harbormaster's Office.
Incidentally, I'll be hosting a crab feast for the delegates from Post 43 and other invited guests. For those of you who have never had steamed Maryland blue crabs with lots of Old Bay seasoning and a National Bohemian beer you don't know what you've been missing! For God and Country - 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).

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.
