GREETING POST 87 MEMBERS
First, I glad to be back from my medical excitement from last year.
As this New Year begins, we feel a joyous sense of expectation that great things are coming my way. We embrace this year, this day, in an awareness of our worth as an expression of God, free to create and embrace the future of our dreams. Although we can do this every day, we feel a renewed impetus as the New Year begins.
We have the opportunity to release limitations, move out of the past, and turn a page in our life story. Turning to the Presence within, we live from the sincere belief that all things are possible. we see this day, this New Year, as a clean slate, filled with unlimited possibilities, we set goals personally and professionally and look forward to the results. With an open mind and heart, we welcome new opportunities into our life.
Now to him by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than we all can ask or imagine, to Him be glory- Ephesians 3:20-21
We wish blessings to all our American legion members and families, our active military and all those who sacrifice for our nation and way of life.
Richard Moore, Chaplain

A short firefight ensued, which resulted in the death of the Yaqui commander and the capture of nine others.

Do you have Genius Abilities?
1. Setting this word problem up as algebraic equations 4a + 6b = 1.56 and 9a + 7b = 2.60 can help you solve it.
b.) APPLE COSTS $0.18 AND 1 BANANA COSTS $0.14.
2. The number 47632 is the only option without the number one in it.
3. And this tricky question is a simple matter of logic.
Work backwards from Monday:
Two days after Monday is Wednesday.
The day immediately after Wednesday is Thursday.
Two days after Thursday is Saturday.
Three days after Saturday is Tuesday.
The answer is Tuesday!
My name is Steve Bernard and I am an Army veteran and retired law enforcement officer living in Bullhead for last 15 years. My son is starting a limousine service and is in need of a couple of drivers with clean MVD and arrest record. A veteran fits the bill. If anyone in your Post is looking or would like a driver job, please let me know and I will put them in contact with my son. It would be a great job for a vet looking for a little extra money and something to do. Thanks for your consideration. I am a Legion member.
