Commandant's Corner

Slattery Marines,

As your new commandant I want to assure you that I will do my best to put this detachment back to the way it was when Pete Gallo lead it. I will be looking for each member to do something during the year, be it a few hours at a Rose outing; a trip with Dan to the Lyons Nursing Home or help on one of our projects (newsletter, ad book, recruitment, Toys for Tots, paying respects at a funeral etc.) that the Slattery Detachment is known for.

I will be looking out to assist you in any way I can. I will be sending out emails with pertinent and helpful information in them for our different members. So, if your email address isn’t on the detachment list that Steve Bliss is updating, send it to me and I’ll get it to the right place. Should you need a current detachment members listing, please ask for it - tfmillerini@gmail.com and I’ll get the most recent out to you. I don’t do Facebook and all those other things, just email. And, I only have a “flip-phone” with-out “texting”.

I know with you and the current Board of Officers we can improve. To do this with them, we will need your help. If you run into a Marine who lives in the area, give him one of our brochures and ask him to come to one of our meetings (1st Wednesday of the month [1930] usually that’s the date except for holidays). We are seeking new members to assist us in helping needy veterans in various ways, so when you can, do your part. See Sr. Vice Norm Nutt for brochures and/or recruitment posters. We have several things coming up so mark your calendars:

Dec 5th - meeting - 1930, Legion home Whippany, note regular meetings start at 1930 sharp
Dec 7th - 1900 - Pearl Harbor Day Ceremony we join with Legion & VFW members, guests. Meet up at 1830 in Slattery uniform (red shirt/black pants/red cover).

Christmas and Hanukkah will be upon us shortly and the board and I hope you and your family have an enjoyable one. Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah to you and your family. Don’t eat to much and have a Happy New Year!

Semper Fi,

Tom Miller
