Memorial Day speech available

A guidelined speech for Memorial Day has been drafted by The American Legion’s Public Relations staff and made available on in Word-document or PDF-file format.

The Legion’s PR staff releases speeches for patriotic national holidays – as well as for the organization’s birthday – as a way for Legionnaires to connect with their communities, or just observe the day with post ceremonies, and emphasize what The American Legion represents. They are not meant to be recited verbatim; members are greatly encouraged to amend them to taste and audience.

All posts are encouraged to upload recaps and photos of their Memorial Day celebrations and other community activities to the blog Legiontown USA. Legiontown is a place for Legionnaires to tell the stories of all the good they do, every day, and to see how other Legionnaires across the country are doing the same.

I have used these speeches a number of times for Memorial and Veterans day events. I am able to download the PDF file,but there is no "hot-link" for the word file, which would be very helpful as I adjust the speech for my audience.
