Waldron Kintzing Post II was elected Commander-in-Chief of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States (MOLLUS) on October 19, 2013. He became a Companion of the MOLLUS through the New York Commandery. In addition, he became a dual member of the Connecticut Commandery, where he was elected Commander.
Companion Post was born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 5, 1937, and soon moved to Bayport, Long Island, New York where he spent his early years. Upon completion of his secondary education, he entered the U.S. Army, serving for three years. After his discharge, he enrolled in the SUNY Oneonta where he did both his undergraduate and graduate studies. In 1964, he began his career as a high school English teacher, and after 30 years, retired. He now resides in Kingston, New York.
While growing up on Long Island, New York, Companion Post was well aware of his ancestors who served during the Civil War as their portraits (Lt. Charles A. Post, Lt Abraham K. Post, and Major General Regis deTrobriand) graced the walls of his grandfather’s home. Companion Post bases his MOLLUS membership on these three Civil War officers. In addition to serving in the Civil War, many of his ancestors also became members (Original and Hereditary Companions) of the MOLLUS.
Companion Post is a member of the Massachusetts State Society of the Cincinnati, the Military Society of the War of 1812, the Daniel E. Sickles Camp #3, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the Order of Indian Wars of the United States. He married Sheila Margey and they have three daughters, Kristen, Alison, and Courtney. In addition, they have nine grandchildren, three of whom are members of the MOLLUS.
