Dear American Legion Member,

I am writing from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum to cordially invite you and your members to attend our National Vietnam War Veterans Day Celebration on March 29, 2023, at 11:00 AM. We are proud to announce that the Honorable Robert Wilkie, 10th U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs will be in attendance and deliver special remarks.

The Richard Nixon Foundation will dedicate a new statue in honor of all those who served our country during the Vietnam War. The monument will be unveiled and permanently displayed at the Nixon Presidential Library. The event will be a great opportunity for members of the community and veterans to come together, share stories, and pay tribute to those who served our nation during the Vietnam War. The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is located at: 
18001 Yorba Linda, Blvd.

We hope that you and your members will join us for this special event. It is free to attend. I've attached a flyer for you to distribute. Your members can get more information and register at:

Dear Post 853 Members,

The Board of Directors of Borrego Health has approved the sale of its clinics, including our Borrego Medical Clinic, to the alliance of DAP/Innercare/Neighborhood Healthcare. A Bankruptcy Court hearing is expected to be held March 1 to approve the sale.

A citizens' committee, Committee to Ensure Primary Care in Borrego Springs, supports the sale of our clinic to the alliance and supports service improvements Borrego Health is making during the transition.  We are passing along to you the attached flyer which informs us that a physician is now at the Borrego Medical Clinic five days per week.  Please spread the word
