The aerospace committee keeps Legion members current on the development of new aerospace technologies and celebrates the history of manned (and now unmanned) flight. Erik Parcells, Chair of this committee is also the 24th District Aerospace Chairman and at the last 2 state conventions went on Air Force sponsored tours at the nearest Air Force Base to the convention.
Children & Youth
The promotion of the Boy Scouts, JROTC, Boys state, Girls state , Big Brothers/Big Sisters, YMCA and many others fit under the committee's umbrella. In conjunction with other committees such as Boy Scouts we donate to and support the development of the generations to follow. Chair Bob MIller is the current 24th District Scout Advisor.
Community Relations & Service
This committee is very active in the Veteran Community. Volunteers, Volunteers, and more Volunteers from our membership and the Post Womens Auxillery support this committees work at the VA hospital and the VA grounds. This year our members posted over 1100 hours of Community service. That does wonders for community relations.
American Legion Baseball
This committee gives information to the post members about how our sponsored team is doing. for 2 years Rocky Sherwood (an LAPD officer) and coach of Fairfax Highs Legion Baseball team has received support from the post. The committee tries to attend the games ( May, June, July ) gives updates on games, playoffs and locations and generally are baseball fanatics. chairman Mort Schecter played Legion Baseball in 1939 and 1940 while attending Fairfax high school.
This committee supports the American Legion principles of Justice, Freedom, and Democracy. Combined with Patriotism and a sense of obligation to the community, state, and nation the committee members embody our preamble. Chair Richard E. Lee has the easiest job of any committee chair.
This committee has done its homework and implemented that plan her at the post. We have 2 x 5,000 Watt generators, an onsite defibrilator ( 6 trained and certified to use it), food and water for 100 people for a week, and medical and survival equipment. In the event of a disaster (fire, earthquake, flood, etc. ) this committee would be ready to serve the post.
