There is no Commander’s Corner this month because we have no Commander. We have enough qualified individuals to step up to serve as Post Commander. We can make it happen pretty quickly once somebody volunteers for the office

ADJUTANT’S DESK by James Wilhoit—

It’s that time of year. 2023-24 DUES ARE DUE. We currently have 96 members renewed. Our goal has not been set yet, but last year it was 178. If it’s close to that for this year we’re at 54%, well ove the 50% we should be at mid-month. To renew on-line, go to or & click RENEW.

Post 19 Honor Guard 

The Post Honor Guard is always looking for members to join our ranks and participate at least two Tuesdays each month at Tahoma National Cemetery. It is a rewarding experience and an excellent way to pay our Veterans back. If interested, call Jerry Livingston at 206-910-6449 for further information. Also, RETIRED HONOR GUARD participants, if you are retired and have any articles of HG clothing, white SS Shirts, gloves, ties or raincoats that were provided by AL Post #19 please contact Jerry Livingston at the above number and we will arrange to pick them up. Thanks, it will be good to get them back in use. 

Our Post sponsors four scouting units: Boy Scout Troop 498 (40 youths), Cub Scout Pack 468 (30 youths), a girls’ BSA Troop, and Venture Crew 498 (10 youths). The Venture group is made up of both boys and girls, and they meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. If you’d like to get involved, contact Scouting Chair Gregory Craff, 425-268-8335,

The Post has Medical Support Equipment including Wheel Chairs, Walkers, Crutches and Shower Chairs. Any member can borrow any of these. items at no cost just by contacting the Chaplain or the Adjutant and showing their Membership card at the time of pick up.

We have a flag disposal ceremony every Flag Day June 14th. You can bring the flags any time to our Post Hall, 3224 NE 12th Street in the Renton Highlands, just below the water tower. If no one is there you can just leave them in a bag by the door.
