FROM THE COMMANDER:

Fellow Legionnaires, family, and friends:

We hope that this newsletter finds you and your families healthy and doing well. We publish our newsletter following each monthly meeting to keep you better informed. We are a little late in getting this out.

To keep our focus, The American Legion was founded in 1919 on four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. These remain our goal for your post in our community.
