Message from the Chaplain

Timothy Pape

Legion Members and Families!  Happy 4th of July.  I’m hopeful that the summer will be prime time for everyone to enjoy the weather and spend quality time with their families.  Vacation and leisure can also give us a moment to reflect on our past achievements and all the obstacles that we’ve overcome.  I’ll encourage everyone to pursue their best life while enjoying our American liberties and finding happiness every day!  

"For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13

Don't let the COVID-19 Stop your pursuit of your VA Disabilities Claims. Please note the contact information for our VA Reps. John H. Blakely Overseas Military Service Coordinator U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs

The VA Reps swap out every six months to help us in Europe yet, their email address remain for the next Reps. They have been coming up to our Tri-Border Benelux area about every two or three months to have individual one-on-one conversations with our members and any Veteran in need of furthering their VA Claim. They are still available to help us during this COVID-19 time via email. Please do contact them if you need assistance.

And naturally, you can contact our Local American Legion Veteran Service Officers,

Dennis Owens or our new Post Service Officer Mr. John Pope in Post NL01 or even our Department Service Officer Mr. Frank Phillips for help. Best part, you do not have to be a member of the American Legion for us to help you.
