I can I create an alias and be able to use it each time I login?  Now I can create an alias, but when I logout and log back in I have to create it again.

Just put it in your .login file.
In this way it will run every time you log in.

Just put the alias in your .profile file. This file runs automatically every time u login. So the alias will be created every time you login.
