Legionnaires Give Blood and Save Lives
David Lasher, Daniel Hunt, Jennifer Crandell and others came out last Sunday to Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish in Los Feliz and gave blood in response to a severe blood shortage L.A. area hospitals are experiencing this summer. Executive Committee member and Community Service Committee chair, Jennifer Crandell hastily recruited a few members to get to the local blood drive to help with the current emergency.
The Community Service Committee is planning a blood drive for members at the post soon. Stay tuned to this space and come to the next meeting to learn more about service opportunities with your fellow Legionnaires! In the meantime, consider giving blood on your own by contacting the American Red Cross or Los Angeles Children's Hospital Blood Donor Center today!

Legion Range Day is Back July 29!
The Sports and Marksmanship Committees bring you another Legion Range Day with your fellow vets and Legion family at Oak Tree Gun Club!
Just bring your weapons, ammo, and eye and ear pro to put some rounds downrange and sharpen up those perishable skills. No guns, no problem. Sharing is caring. Do keep your head on a swivel and be prepared to have a fun and SAFE day with your friends and some friendly competition with our comrades from Palisades Post 283.
All Legion Family welcome. For more information, contact André Andrews or post to the Post 43 Members Group.
RSVP to get a head count.
Do you ride? Are you interested in community service and helping veterans? Post 43 is gauging interest from the membership to start a chapter of American Legion Riders in Hollywood. If you're interested, come to the next meeting or contact First Vice Commander, Michael Hjelmstad at the post.
