Greenpoint Gazette 1980

Ed (SARGE) Wrobkwski. The son-of-a-gun is looking good! Put on about fifty pounds. When Nick Jr. and I went to see him in the-, VA Hospital we got the shock of our life! Sarge weighed only 90 lbs. Seeing him a week ago. shows what a remarkable recovery he made. How many years has he been Sgt-At-Arms in this Post? Wouldn’t’ be nice to make him Honorary Sgt-At-Arms? Anyway. It’s just a thought. Charles Merjave and Harry Schwartz did a bang up job chairing the Carnival. The same ol’ smiling faces coming to help and slowly new faces on the horizon.


For a change each membership Chairman has an incentive to get on your tail about the dues. As of January 1, 1981 the Per Capita goes up $1.50. You MUST pay your dues BEFORE December 15th for the Post to retain the $1.50. Starting with the First of the year a $1.50 is added to our Per Capita. Wouldn’t it be nice if each Post makes 100% membership before the year is over? Whey shouldn’t the Post benefit. Now, its up to each individual member to cooperate and keep the money in his Posts’ tilt. Think about it, just once, and then ACT.

Gazette No Date.

The American Legion name was prominent when the epidemic broke out in Philadelphia, a few years back, and all you heard about was the Legionnaires Disease. Not so long ago, a ferry went off course here in New York City and ran into a sea wall. Wouldn’t you know it! It was called The American Legion.

Always fighting, unheralded, for the future of our great country.
