The San Diego American Legion Family recently hosted a public relations booth at the 2014 San Diego MCAS Miramar Blue Angels Air Show.
San Diego's VIP Membership Team landed at 0630 loaded for bear with American Legion recruitment pamphlets and Four Pillars brochures. The VIP team especially wishes to thank their flight crew for a gracious flight to membership success.
MCAS Miramar has strict base membership recruiting restrictions on base. So the team's main mission was to conduct public relations operations along with education of active-duty personnel with regards to The American Legion's mission.
The PR booth was manned for three days by members from San Diego's 29 Legion posts, Auxiliary, SAL and Legion Riders. Along with a lot of handshakes and thank-you's went personal invitations to visit local posts.
Especially welcomed was the reaching-out to many units and squadrons with an invitation to utilize local posts to host their unit social functions.
The 22nd District was especially appreciative to San Diego Post 731 for incurring the burden of costs to secure the event booth. Post 731 Commander Chuck Camarato stated, "When the San Diego American Legion Family wins, Post 731 wins."
