The Zaloga Post is fortunate to have a group of dedicated officers for its Post.  From its earliest beginnings as a Post many Zaloga Post members have served in many positions and at differing levels of the American Legion.  The Zaloga Post at various times in its history has had one or more of its members intimately involved in American Legion affairs at the County, District, State and National levels.  Today is no different.
