American Legion Post 44

Update from Post Commander David Thibeau April 13, 2020

Post 44 remains closed to members until authorized to reopen by the State of NM. As you know, our closure is the result of several State of New Mexico Public Health Emergency Orders trying to limit the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Regrettably, compliance with the Orders forced Post 44 to cease regular operations on March 19.

We still hope this situation remains short term. In the meantime however, your Post officers and remaining staff continue to tend to any Post business and diligently wait for notice allowing us to reopen.

When we do reopen, members will enjoy a spruced up Post. The Casino will be remodeled, you’ll see many improvements in the kitchen and the Post floors will be freshly stripped and waxed.

Please Note: All in-house Executive Committee and General Membership Meetings have been cancelled until further notice.

Pursuant to a conversation with Department Adjutant Tony Navarete and a polling of the Executive Committee, election of Post 44 2020-2021 officers is postponed until closure restrictions are lifted and we can have a regular membership meeting. Until then, current officers will stay in office.

The Post 44 family may not be able to enjoy each other face to face, but please stay connected. Call, text, email, visit over the fence, or whatever, just check up on your friends, family, fellow veterans, and neighbors. We are at our best when serving veterans, their families, and our community.
