  Greeting Legion Family. Thank you, Thank you for your support. Moving into another Chapter in my life. What a great group to be with, even though been working with all of you. I will continue working with you to make the American Legion stronger and better as we move forward in the next Chapter.

Thank you, Past Department Commander, Robert Rodriquez, for your leadership the past year. Enjoyed working with you and look forward to continue working together. What a ride it was.

Since I've been Commander, I have been on the phone with Tony N, and Mary P, at the office. I guess I could call it the "Hot Line". Have been getting information on what Committees need to be appointed and setting up for the 30-Day Executive Committee Meeting for Saturday, July 23, 2022. More details will follow. Thank you, Mary, and Tony, for all the advice.

I will have an Open Door Policy. If you should have any question or concern, message me or call me, or any of the 5 Area Vice-Commander, that will be helping. Also don't forget the Commanders Aide, Don Segura who has lots of knowledge and experience. What a TEAM we have.

I have mention before, as many other have, that we must carry the Brand of the American Legion, so others can know who we are. Talk to all organization in your community. Remember we are "Proud Veterans". Keep working to get more members. Thank you all for your service and keep up the good work.

Robert L. Casados
Department Commander 2022-2023
