William J Murphy III elected Detachment Commander
at the 44th Detachment Convention
in his Squadron's Hometown ~ Plymouth Mass
This is the third time William J "Bill" Murphy III will serve the Detachment in this capacity. During the 1985 convention Bill was first elected to serve for one year which was the limit due to the by-laws. Murphy has served the detachment in many of the officer positions including Detachment Adjutant, NEC and Alt NEC. Late in 1987 Murphy stepped up and completed the term of a commander that was unable to do so due to personal, work and family issues. Bill has served the National organization as National Chaplain, and on several committees and commissions. He brings many years of experience to the Detachment, including as a junior from Hanover High School, Bill attended Massachusetts Boy’s State and was elected by his fellow citizen’s one of the two US Senator’s. This gave him the opportunity to attend Boy’s Nation in Washington DC. An honor Murphy cherishes and fondly remembers. Murphy comes from a True Legion Family, his father William J Murphy Jr. is a Past Commander of the Department of Mass and his mother the late Barbara Murphy was a Past Department President of the Mass American Legion Auxiliary. This is the only family in our state that can claim such an honor.
More Info on the Convention will be posted soon
