Greg Henricks is new commander
American Legion Post 38 in Floresville has a new commander.
Gregory P. Henricks, a retired U.S. Marine Corps sergeant major, was sworn in June 14. He has been a member of the American Legion for four years, all in Floresville.
Originally from Antigo, Wis., Henricks served as a Marine for 26 years. The Vietnam veteran also provided security at Camp David during the last year Jimmy Carter was president, and for the first four years of Ronald Reagan’s presidency.
Following his military career, he served as security director at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., for 12 years.
Henricks and his wife, Maria, have been married for 42 years. They have a son, a daughter, and five grandchildren.
The family tie brought them to Texas from Wisconsin. After their son moved to the San Antonio area, they realized the only way to see grandchildren more than once a year was to be closer to them.
Now fully retired, Henricks spends time with his children and grandchildren, and working with the American Legion, he said.
“I invite any veterans in the area to come check us out,” he said. “We have 186 members!”
American Legion Post 38 meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the American Legion Hall, 1412 Fourth St. on the courthouse square in Floresville.
