Why Veterans Should Join
AMERICAN LEGION POST 371?
Do You Remember?
Do you remember when your unit was under fire? You were scared. You didn't know whether you would ever get home again, see your family, your loved ones. And the only thing that you could count on in that instant was your buddy. And you knew he was counting on you too.
Perhaps you were one of the lucky ones who never saw combat. Do you remember the tediousness of garrison life? Do you remember the interminable "hurry up and wait?" Do you remember the inane make-work projects you were ordered to do? But your buddy was always there along side you, making wise-crack, helping you make it though each day, maybe even covering for you on occasion.
Your buddy still needs you!!!
Maybe your buddy is in one of the VA hospitals; his war wounds and/or time have taken its toll on his body. Maybe he or she is a young veteran, just discharged from the service in Iraq, Afghanistan or Vietnam, and is having difficulty finding a civilian job. Maybe your buddy is jast an ordinary guy or gal like yourself, wanting to share stories and comradeship with someone who was in a similar situation.
We are veterans just like you. We care about America, our fellow veterans, our families and our children. As a member of Post 371 you continue to serve our Country and our Community. Post 371 needs you now.
Our Legionnaires participate in many community activities such as parades, memorials, dedications, food and clothing drives, homeless veterans outreach, providing comfort items for U.S. troops recovering in military hospitals, etc. And our Service Officer helps our members and their families get the VA benefits they earned and deserve.
We have a funeral Honor Guard detail ready, willing and able at the family's request. Our funeral detail is available to all veterans. When requested, we are also available to help other veteran organizations with their memorials.
We sponsor local students to participate in American Legion Baseball, Boys State, High School Oratorical Competition, and sponsor scholarships to better educate our children. AND MUCH MORE!
AMERICA NEEDS YOU! * YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU! * THE AMERICAN LEGION NEEDS YOU!
