The Slattery Detachment held their monthly November meeting at the
American Legion on November 7th. It started on time at 1930. There were
approximately 40 members of the detachment along with 7 wives and
girlfriends plus 6 State officers in attendance. Right after the "Roll-call
of Officers" the meeting was turned over to the State MCL officers for the
installation of the 2018-2019 officers.
After a brief speech about what is occurring with in the State MCL the
installation took place. A new Judge Advocate and a new Commandant took
their place next to the remainder of the officer board from last year.
Michael Dougherty replaced Robert Stalzer as Judge Advocate and Tom Miller
replaced Eddie Neas as Commandant. They raised their right hands and
repeated the oath of office then took their respected places at the table.
The meeting went on in the normal course finally ending about 2015 with
Eddie Moscariello winning the 50/50. After that, we were treated to a
great dinner of salads, sandwiches, drink, and cake. The group
that assembled the food and drink were made up by John Andrews with
sandwiches/salads from Longfellows in Morristown, Eddie Neas with the
"Happy 243rd Birthday Marines" decorated cake from Acme and Tom Miller with
the rest of the food and drink items.
The group finally left the American Legion at approximately 2200 after
