In need of some assistance with VETERAN ISSUES....????

Edward Padilla
Second Vice Commander
Veteran Service Officer
American Legion Post 24 Kirby Stewart
Ph: (941) 962-3345
Email: guest4tea@msn.com
Available to the membership and community Vets on Thursday

by appointment please.

Along with being the 2nd Vice Commander at POST 24, Ed Padilla is also the VETERAN SERVICE OFFICER for the post.  This is one position that requires more than just showing up or phoning it in.  It requires a ‘calling’.  A dedication and commitment to the job at hand.  One has to aggressively seek out answers to numerous questions, to search for other avenues when facing a dead end and following up each request to the satisfaction of the VETERAN in need.

As a VETERAN, we have all been in situations where we could have used some advice or some assistance with a problem concerning the VA.   It is reassuring now to know that Ed Padilla is at POST 24 and eager to help those in need of some answers to VETERAN ISSUES.

MEMBERSHIP PRIVILEGES….at POST 24     (SHOW YOUR CARD)

It seems some folks are confused as to what constitutes being a member and how it affects a visit to POST 24.

MEMBERSHIP means being a member of the AMERICAN LEGION.  It does not mean exclusively to POST 24.  Although we encourage you to join OUR post you are still considered a MEMBER as long as you are a MEMBER in good standing with the AMERICAN LEGION.  (SHOW YOUR CARD)

MEMBERS can take advantage of the many benefits the AMERICAN LEGION has to offer and all the benefits POST 24 has to offer. (SHOW YOUR CARD)

Did you know that MEMBERS are exempt from paying SALES TAX on food and beverage items…?  Non-members MUST pay sales tax.  That adds up over time.

(SHOW YOUR CARD)

When YOU order your food and beverage from the bartender or food server please do not be OFFENDED when they ask to see your AMERICAN LEGION CARD.  They are simply attempting to offer you your DISCOUNT. 

(SHOW YOUR CARD)

When you show OFFENSE at being asked to show your CARD you create a very unhealthy environment.  You should be proud to show your CARD indicating that you are a MEMBER and a SUPPORTER of the AMERICAN LEGION.

(SHOW YOUR CARD)

You will also learn quickly that using the excuse that you left your CARD at home does not bode well at POST 24.  You should have your CARD on you at all times.

(SHOW YOUR CARD)

Now, what have we learned here today, people..?  (SHOW YOUR CARD)

Folks, I have NEVER heard of one complaint on the food.  It is DELICIOUS...!!!     Anyway,... Chef JIM'EE is looking for more ways to serve the finest to our finest.  My 'staff' came up with that one..  
Remember them..?
