Jack Mallord

All American and All State Commander 2020-2021

Jack passed away the day before Christmas. He was always willing to step in when needed to get the job done. Jack was the Post Chaplin this year and has been our Webmaster for several years as well as District 17 Webmaster. Jack joined the United States Marine Corps in 1960 where he served for 24 years. Jack served in Viet Nam and Okinawa where he was a KC130 Navigator. Jack was a Navigation instructor at Mather. He retired as a Gunnery Sergeant. Jack’s willingness to help and serve his fellow veterans will be missed.We extend our sympathies to his wife Barbara and their family.

All eligible VA members can get set up at the VA for their shots - it is my understanding that even if not over 65 an appointment can be made SO DO IT

Other sites are available for the shots, notably UCD, and at some future date, CVS, Walmart, Walgreens...and others

The important thing is to get the shots, regardless of location
