I cannot believe I’ve been the commander for SAL Squadron 129 for the last three years. I am turning the gavel over to Rocky Lucia who has had my back the entire time that I was commander. Thank you Rocky. I hope I can do as good a job with giving you my support as you have for me. I would also like to thank the rest of my executive board for all their hard work in making me look good over the last three years – which is a full time job; and the countless hours that you have put in. It did not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated. Three years have gone by and now it's time to move on. I want to also thank all the Commanders, past and present, of our post that have worked hard to help the SAL and me. Rich Gato, Rich Godfrey and Mike Schaffer. Also I would like to thank from the auxiliary Jane Keeley and Pat Corbin for all their support. And last but not least our riders and their president Art Brown. It was a great run and I will never forget what we have done for American Legion Post 129 and all the veterans. To take a page out of Commander Mike Schaffer’s book, that's what we do! I would like to just remind all our squadron members one last time, your dues are due. Please remember this is the lifeline of the SAL. Now I left for last one very special person that gave me his 100% support and that’s Duke Haring; who I cannot say enough about. So many times I would have a problem, he had the answers and always was right there for me. Well that is it for now; but don't forget anything anytime I will always be there for the greatest post in the state and proud to have been part of it for the last 3 years. God Bless everyone.

For God and Country,
Bob Joerg
