Changes around the Post:

Entrance The floor has been replaced and walls received a fresh coat of paint.

Banquet Rooms Storage Closets are being constructed at each end of the Hall. Thank you to Ron Gercie for the many hours spent running the electricity with me to the new closets.

 

Free Dental Day:

On Saturday, November 10, 2018, Wolfe Dental Spa will be hosting a free dental day. All veterans are welcome to have one (1) dental service (filling or extraction) for free as a thank you for their service to our country and to help those in need who otherwise may not have dental coverage. Root canals are not included; free service includes problem centered exam, x-ray of area, and one filling or extraction to be completed on the free dental day only. Veteran’s I.D. card or Veteran designation on your state I.D. is required. Patients will be seen from 09:00 to 15:00 on a first come, first served basis. Wolfe Dental Spa is located at 5250 Freemansburg Ave, Bethlehem PA.

Flag Removal:

Members of our Legion Family along with other volunteers will be removing the flags from Veterans Graves at the Northampton Memorial Shrine on Saturday, November 17, 2018. Rain date Saturday, November 24, 2018. Please mark your calendars.

 

Membership:

Membership remains our #1 priority. As of this writing 59.04 % of our members paid their 2019 dues. If you are one of the 40.96% that have not paid, please make payment a priority.

District Commander Gallaher has a list of Legionnaires in our area that are not members of a specific Post. Next month I will share the names of these members in hopes that you may recognize some one and invite them to join our Post.

 

In closing I continue to solicit your continued support with the many projects and dreams. We have 586 members and I realize that 293 or 50% of our membership are up in age and not able to volunteer but if you have a talent that you could share with us I look forward to hearing from you.

Request DD-214’s

It’s official; DD-214s are online NOW!. The Nation Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following websites for Veterans to gain access to their DD-214s online:

http://vetrecs.archives.gov/   or try

http://vetrecs.archives.gov/veterans/military--service-records/

This may particularly helpful when a Veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes.

Military Veterans and next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the standard from 180, which can be downloaded from the website.

Because the requester will be asked to supply all the information essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when further information is required will be minimized. The new web-based application eliminates the records center mailroom and reduces processing time. Please pass this information on to Veterans and their dependents you may know.
