Custer Legionnaires,

Custer Post #46 has activated its Buddy Check Program. All Post members are being contacted to ensure their well-being and to arrange for any necessary assistance.

Post Commander Donald Hone directed activation of this program due to personal isolation resulting from the Wuhan Flu pandemic “social distancing” measures. Post Service Officer Glen Talley. Jr. is managing the program with principal assistance from Post Adjutant Ralph Sowder, and Post Chaplain Paul Larson. Other Post members are assisting with telephone calls.

All Post members can expect periodic buddy checks while “social distancing” measures remain in effect. All members are encouraged to keep in touch with each other via telephone, e-mail, and other convenient means.

Stay in contact. And if you need any assistance, call Post Adjutant Sowder at (605) 673-3930 or any of the Post Officers. Veterans helping veterans. This is what the American Legion does!

Custer Legionnaires,


South Dakota Department of Health has established a “Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Information” webpage at, https://doh.sd.gov/news/Coronavirus.aspx. It contains; statewide status, precautions, guidance, and resources in a quick and usable format.

There has been much news about the COVID-19 Coronavirus. The SD DOH webpage provides information you can actually use. It is a good first stop for those searching for local data.

As far as the near-future, expect; event cancellations, temporary closure of facilities, travel slowdown/cancellation, and increased “remote working”. All of this “social distancing” is designed to slow the virus’s spread.

What you can do is to pay close attention to your own health and casual physical contact with others. Remember to keep in touch with relatives, friends, and neighbors who may be at risk. These especially include the elderly, homebound, and those with existing medical conditions. Your assistance may be critical for them.

Stay healthy!
