Ordinary (Veteran) Member
While I am a veteran of the US Air Force, I was stationed on two occasions in Air Traffic Control Radar Maintenance at Canadian Forces Base: Goose Bay in Labrador. My service made me eligible for membership in the American Legion, however, I chose to join the Royal Canadian Legion. At the time, I felt that the San Francisco branch of Royal Canadian Legion had a wider range of social gatherings and other activities that were more enjoyable to attend.
As a member of Branch 25, I have served in a number of executive positions- including as Membership Chair for the past 15 years or so.
I joined to support veterans and for the comradery that I saw in the Legion.
