Hello Fellow Legionnaires,
My name is Leslie Kruft. I am a member of the Otto Hendrickson Post 212, Park Rapids, MN. I have been a member of The American Legion since 2018. I have accepted the position of 6th District West Sub Vice Commander for the 2021-2022 year. As with most people that take a new position at any level from post on up, I am learning.
I believe that we must work as a team to keep our wonderful Veterans Organization alive and growing. Let’s get out there and get those younger veterans. Remember they are our future. We must also remember that they can be a member if they are still in the service. With the new guidelines that have been opened for us we can recruit these individuals. Without the newer members we will die out and we can’t let that happen. This organization is important not just to our veterans but to their families and our communities as well.
I am excited to represent my post, Otto Hendrickson Post 212 as well as the 6th District to the best of my ability. During my 5 years as a member, I have been the Post Historian, JAG Officer, and Scholarship Chairperson. I am a member of our Legion Rider Chapter where I am currently serving as the Finance Officer. I am a Member of the Color/Honor Guard as well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will be reaching out to the Posts in the West Sub, so we can get to know each other. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you on this journey.
Thank you, Leslie Kruft
West Sub Vice Commander
