I would like to introduce myself; I am Howard Marotto and will be the Commander of Massillon Post 221 for the next two years. I come from a customer service back ground; I worked for an Air Transportation Company for 30 years. I continue to be employed in customer service, since I retired from fulltime employment in October 2005. I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. I joined the US Navy in January 1970, leaving the service of the Navy in December 1973. I worked a few jobs before being employed by Hughes Air West, YES, the company was owned by that Howard Hughes. After some mergers and consolidation of the Airline Industry, I retired from North West Airlines.
I look forward to serving as Commander of Massillon Post 221 of the American Legion, assisting everyone in enjoying the American Legion experience. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can in the near future. My team and I are here to serve the Membership and to perform all the duties of the American Legion. Finally, the first regular membership meeting of July is cancelled due to the July 4th holiday.
~~Howard Marotto, Commander
