About the Legion:

It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

Administrative Announcements:
 
In order to save money, Quarterly Newsletters will be replaced by the Post Website.  If you have information that you would like to share, please submit through the "Contact Us" Navigation button on the side of the page.  
 
The Adjutant is also trying to improve our compliance with Federal Tax laws that apply to Veteran Organizations. To accomplish this we are asking members to submit a photocopy of their DD-214.  This is important for any future audits that may occur.
 
A new tool  available to all members is the new website called "MyLegion".  Through this website members can access Legion news, renew your dues on line, and communicate with other members.  Check this site out.  I will put a navigation button on the side of our home page.
