To All Hands.
Here in part, is a portion of our newly elected National Commander Dan Dellinger's acceptance speech
on 29 August 2013 to the delegation.
“Some voices in the media say that we are a dying organization. I disagree, and seeing all these faces in this room today, I know you do, too. If we're going to grow, we need to step it up. We need
everyone on this construction team to lend a hand and build our membership back to our all time high.”
Dellenger announced his two membership incentive programs this year. “Any Legion family member
who signs up five new or expired members will receive a special hat pin, while any who sign up 15 or
new or expired members will receive a special coin.”
This is in no way is to take away our Membership Director Harvey's Thunder, but merely to share our
National Commander's program this year in membership. Let's keep Harvey busy as well as all our
post adjutants & membership directors in the record keeping of our recruiters bringing in the new
membership and expired members memberships.
I want to see how many hat pins will be worn, I will work to wear one, in the Solid Second. I also
want to know how many will receive the special coin..This is my goal—let it be yours also.
