Hello Everyone in the Big Sixth District –

The National Convention is over and done with. What an enjoyable and informative time it was. Let’s all give a hearty Big 6th District congratulations and welcome to our new TAL National Commander, Daniel J. Seehafer from Wisconsin.  And congratulate Robert L. Bristo from the 5th District of Minnesota for being elected as a National Vice-Commander of the Sons of the American Legion.

As I write this, we have not received an official recent membership update. We hear in the leadership team are hard at work trying to fill the shoes of a giant among us, Ken Meyer. Please be sure to keep Ken and his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers. With that said, I do know the 6th District is currently in second place in the Department, only 1.45% points behind the 4th District.  I also firmly believe you will all continue the hard work of getting our current members to send in their renewals, talk to 1982 members into joining us here in the Big 6th District, and especially talking to our young veterans that have not yet joined our ranks.

I hope to see you soon around the District, either at County Council meetings or at your Posts, or at the various Fall meetings around the Department.
