12th District Council, Department of Ohio
Summer is here, and it is hot. So we must continue our efforts to reach out
to our homeless vets. Every day in Central Ohio, hundreds of them roam
the streets---cold, lonely, hungry, dirty, miserable, needing a shower,
without homes, despondent---abandoned. We HAVE to help.
These patriots risked life and limb for our country. Let's not turn our back on them.
If you know of ANY homeless veteran in Reynoldsburg who desperately
needs help, contact any one of our post officers, the
12th District Council Office (Open M-W-F, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
at (614) 224-2900, or
any Central Ohio American Legion post.
Our Prayers for Carole Ebersole
The officers and members of Post 798 continue to pray for Carole Ebersole, President of the Gahanna Post 797 Ladies Auxiliary unit. May God grant her a speedy and healthy recovery.
Our thoughts and prayers go with her and with her husband Steve, currently our inimitable district's executive secretary.
Our Best to Our Sergeant-at-Arms
Post Sgt.-at-Arms Dan Skinner, a member of the Naval Reserve, is serving on active duty for six months. Dan is now serving overseas in the Middle East.
Our thoughts and prayers go with you, Dan. Anchors aweigh, and stay safe.
New Post 2nd Vice Commander
A hearty welcome aboard to our new post 2nd VC, Gerald Schultz. A retired U.S. Army 1st sergeant, he will make a fine addition to our post. Gerry and his wife are both Army veterans.
Glad to have you aboard, Gerry!
The Reynoldsburg Post 798 regular monthly meeting is at the F.O.E. Eagles Club (#3261) located at 1623 Brice Road in Reynoldsburg (a block north of Rosehill Ave). All regularly scheduled monthly meetings are held here. All Legionnaires are invited to come.
The Eagles Club will gladly allow all members of the American Legion to enter an hour before the meetings. Just press the buzzer and state that you have come for the Legion meeting. Sgt-at-Arms McPherson will be there to ensure all Legionnaires are admitted.
Attendance for post officers is mandatory.
All other post members are also encouraged to attend and help the officers in their planning. Any qualifying veteran wishing to join is also quite welcome to attend and be a part of the largest, most effective veteran organization in the country.
If there are any questions. please contact Post Commander, Pete Margaritis at (614) 395-0387.
Post 798 is still looking for Legionnaires that are in good standing to fill the following positions:
Just recently, Post 798’s 2nd Vice Commander unfortunately had to resign his position because of work-related requirements. So we need an individual―a leader―to fill his position. Our 1st Vice Commander (and former Reynoldsburg Mayor) Bob McPherson is currently taking on the additional role of Sergeant-at-Arms, so we need that position filled as well.
Now is a great opportunity to get a detailed, inside look at what The American Legion does. It is a chance for you to become involved in Legion activities, and to actively participate in what we do, and the difference we make―to the Reynoldsburg community, the Central Ohio district, our state, and the nation.
