Our American Legion amateur radio operators offers continuous inspiration to come to the service of their community, courageously and unselfishly during difficult times.
Post Certification of Officers - Word Horizontal Draft
Article 5, Section 12. The Post Certification of Officers and District Committee assignment form shall be submitted to the Department Adjutant through the District Commander before July 15 of each year. Posts failing to submit the forms on a timely basis will be placed on probation by the Department Executive Committee.
In a few years (2019), The American Legion will celebrate 100 years of dedicated and loyal service to America and all of America's veterans. This is a rare moment in time when we can look back on all the good things The American Legion has done, not for a few years or a few decades, but for 100 years!
As the date of our Legion's 100th Birthday approaches, we have a great opportunity to reach out to the veteran community and our local communities to tell them about The American Legion, all over again. The Centennial gives us a valid excuse to "toot our horn" and let everyone know The American Legion is alive and doing well!
How do we "toot our horn" to maximize our exposure, while keeping the cost to a minimum? Here are a few ideas for your post to consider:
The American Legion has developed several Centennial resources, become familiar with them and use them to help get your post's story told. A visit to the Centennial.Legion.Org web site is good place to start:
Tell your post's story to your members and your local community as often as you can and in as many ways as you can.
The American Legion Centennial Celebration is not only about honoring the past 100 years of our history, but also preparing to continue our legacy of service. Events and activities at posts all around the world will showcase The American Legion "Still Serving America."
Growth is nothing new to The American Legion Riders. Each year the Riders have broken records for funds raised during the annual Legacy Run. That extended to last summer, when the Riders brought in more than $1.2 million for the fund that provides college scholarships for the children of parents who died while on active-duty military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the children of post-9/11 veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs disability rating of 50 percent or higher.
But the Riders aren’t growing just in terms of money they’ve raised. Recently, the number of American Legion Rider chapters hit 2,000 nationwide. Since March 31 alone, 115 chapters have been formed – an average of more than 40 a month. The Riders continue to be the fastest-growing program in The American Legion.
