Religious Emphasis


Last year's project undert by MathewThalasinos was writing of the American Legion Riders Manual of Prayers.

The biker blessings and prayers in the Manual of Prayers are available at

Additional prayers that didn't make it into the Manual in the first edition

have been added to the website.

Modification of the Convention S.A.L. Memorial Service is being finalized. By Matthew and myself.

If anyone would like to volunteer for the committee they should contact me as soon as possible.

Due to problems following a funeral done by Ely funeral home when the procession was separated and some members did not arrive until the service was completed I recommend the funeral director be spoken to ahead of time, encourage people in procession to use GPS with printed directions as backup.

For Family God and Country,

William R Odom IV

Detachment Chaplain
