Dear Fellow Legionnaires, Auxiliary Members, and Visitors -


American Legion Fred Hancock Post 19, Renton, Washington extends warm wishes to all for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2014. There has been new energy at the Post in recent months, with new members coming to our meetings (second Tuesday of the month, except for July and August). We continue to search for additional volunteers for our Honor Guard duties at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, as well as many other opportunities related to serving our veterans and local community. Our next dine out will be on January 28th at 6:00PM.


For God and Country,

Rod Haynes, Commander

Other Veterans may be looking at a stable life and career with the usual amounts of happiness plus success in store for them. And yet some others are looking at the diminishing days hoping for no nasty surprises in their future.But for all of you, remember there is Fred Hancock Post 19 of the American Legion - commonly referred to as the Post that HELPS more Veterans then any other Post. There are opportunities to obtain support, to give support and to generally uphold the image of Veterans by giving support to the community. With all that lets all have a better year of 2014.

Honor Guard


The Honor Guard is looking for new volunteers.  Many of our WWII Veterans are no longer able to volunteer for this duty.  Contact John King (at 425-432-0631) if you can help out for this very worthy activity.




At the beginning of December 2013 Fred Hancock Post 19 renewals of membership stand at just over 91%.  While we are proud of our achievements in membershihp thus far, we continue to seek new members and ask existing members who have not yet submitted their dues to act immediately.  Our numbers give the Legion a powerful tool in Washington to aid our Military Services's personnel and veterans.  Let's make 100% for 2014!



The next Newsletter will coming out in early January, 2014.  Copies of past newsletters are available at the Post Hall.
