Detachment of New Jersey
Vice Commander

Gregory Shaffer

Updated October 13, 2017

 

Hello Comrades,

I would first like to thank all of you for your support, voting me in to the position of Detachment Vice Commander for the State of New Jersey. I look forward to working with the Legion family throughout the coming year, 2017-2018. My membership is through American Legion Post #174, Squadron #174, in Wayne, NJ. I am a proud (10) year member of the SAL and have served in various capacities at the squadron, county and state levels. My membership eligibility is through my father who proudly served during WWII.

Commander Page has assigned me the counties of Bergen, Hudson, Passaic and Sussex. My goal this year is to visit each Squadron in these counties through county meetings, squadron meetings and social events. Anytime you wish to schedule a visit with me or have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. My contact information is shown below.
