Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the post commander read this! Who is the post commander, anyway?

I have quit going to the Legion along with 3-4 friends because when the "Upper Crust" of the Club leaders are there, you really feel like you don't belong there, almost like it's their club and theirs only...

I have never read a letter of complaint before by someone tooting their own horn. Phyllis you were the person ban from the legion you were also the person who tried to sit in on the men meeting and was asked to leave and refused and was escorted out. There was also a lot of stealing that was going on and a bartender was caught I hate to say red handed. Your bar manager and their exhusband were running the place into the ground. There was even talk of the legion being closed down. That would be a shame if this happens because the Legion is meant to be for our soldiers. Not for a bunch of drama queen women. If you are going to post a letter to the editor and embarrass a legend such as the American Legion please get your facts straight and please don't make what you did sound like it was someone else.frying steak and a few stitches a good person it does not make. You have ran this place down for almost a year. Put your energy into joining a gym or get counseling. God Bless America.

I happen to go to the legion tonight in time to see the New Ulm police there to escort someone banned. And she has been ban for some time now and just keeps coming.

I pledge allegiance to Searles and to the bar before which I usually stand, one fine bar, though sometimes invisible, with Liberty and Tiffany and Cindi, and with domestic beer for all (unlike that hoity-toity American Legion joint).

The American Legion is a social and mutual-aid veterans' organization including members of the United States armed forces. The organization was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I, and was later chartered as an official American patriotic society under Title 36 of the United States Code. The organization is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and also has offices in Washington, DC. The group has nearly 3 million members in over 14,000 Posts worldwide.[2]

In addition to organizing commemorative events and volunteer veteran support activities, the American Legion is active in issue-oriented U.S. politics. Its primary political activity is lobbying on behalf of the interests of veterans and service members, including support for veterans benefits such as pensions and the Veterans Affairs hospital system.Not to be used and be made a mockery of.

When dealing with Postels I take everything with a grain of salt. The court system does, too.

More energy should be put into following city ordinances such as mowing lawn, shoveling snow, removing junk vehicle and junk from her yard than trying to run an organization down because it isn't run the way she wants.
