A Special Message from Commander Eric Spinner

     As I assume the office of Commander of our Post, I am humbled by the confidence you have placed in my ability to lead us into the next year.  During my fifteen years as a Legionnaire, my involvement has been at many levels. Having first joined Elmont Post 1033, I held most officer positions, and have held most of the same positions with the Legion Riders.  I've served with Nassau Legion as Education & Scholarship Chair and as Chaplain for most of the last thirteen years, and as Post 144 Chaplain for the last three years.  I volunteer regularly to assist with other functions and committees as well, and I bring my experience to Post 144 where I hope to not only restore full activity, but also to increase our membership.

     I look forward to working with my staff who bring many years of expertise to our Post, and offer special thanks to our new Immediate Past Commander, James Randle, whom I will consult with on a regular basis.  James continues as Post Historian and as a Trustee.

     Moving ahead will require the efforts of many members of our Post to be coordinated and unified.  I welcome input and suggestions from all, and hope that we will see a year of growth and prosperity for our Post.




We're working as fast as we can to make our website the best you'll find.

Special Request from your Webmaster, Eric Spinner-

Getting our page up to speed requires input from many sources, and I ask you to dig into your archives and send me items that would be suitable for our website.  If you have anything we can use, please let me know.
