My name is Kenneth J. Braun, third year Commander of Merrick Post No. 1282, American Legion, here in Merrick. I am sending you a personal note to renew your membership in the proud organization of The American Legion. I see you have been a past member for the past xxx years and would hate to see you leave now.
Membership supports our Post to help our Veterans. We here at the Merrick Post No. 1282 make visits with gifts and supplies to many veterans at the nursining homes of Stony Brook and Northport. We support many civil gourps, including Boys and Girls Scout troops. We are stronger with you than without you.
Dear Veteran, I am sending along an addressed stamped envelope for you to send in your dues for $35.00 for the 2016 year. Make your check payable to American Legion Merrick Post No. 1282. For any reason you feel you do not want to be a member any longer, please send back my note with a reason and maybe I could be of help in some way.
Yours for the Good of the Legion
Kenneth J. Braun, Post Commander
