Post 1 Commander's Notes

Added on 03.05.2019

Two months into the new year and it’s businessas usual — exceptional efforts, outstanding resultsby our volunteers. The End-of-Year party was a great success, again. Maybe establishing a Legion Family Post 1 tradition? We have solid relationships with Cub Scouts Pack 266, BSA Troop 79, and
Pack 79. Pinewood Derby and Pack 266 is a Post 1 tradition. Congratulations to the winner, Jake Weins.

February General Membership meeting we welcomed a special guest speaker — Lt. Col. Osterholzer, head of the Denver Public Schools JROTC program. Jeff Pitchford reached out and organized the Colonel’s time. Membership was genuinely interested in potential future activities with Denver JROTC.

Notes from Post 1 s.a.l. Commander


Nine years ago, S.A.L. Squadron 1 member Al Duran held a “Friends Remembering Friends” celebration at Post 1. He started this event several years before, to honor the memory of those friends (and friends of friends) who passed during the time between events.

Those of you who know Al, are very familiar with his “final-final” statements. With the passing of his friend Gerry Emrick, he decided the December 2018 event would be THE FINAL-FINAL. But it doesn’t mean any of us will stop remembering friends who have passed away. Thank you Duran-Duran for holding the past nine years of celebration here at Post 1, for becoming part of The  American Legion Post 1 family, and a member of the Post 1 Color Guard.
