The American Legion’s Legiontown campaign serves as a platform for posts to share their stories on ways they are raising their community profile. The campaign runs now through the end of November, but posts are encouraged to share stories throughout the year online at: www.legiontown.org
A Legiontown is where Legion Family members come together to conduct activities that support their posts, veterans, military personnel and their community. They visit patients in VA hospitals; convert their post into a makeshift emergency shelter; conduct successful youth programs such as Boys State, Girls State, Oratorical Contests and Legion Baseball; host fundraisers that support the Legion’s Legacy Scholarship Fund so the children of our fallen heroes can afford college; and they teach patriotism and flag etiquette to today’s youth.
Legiontown is a community where Legion Family members welcome home returning servicemembers from war, hang Blue Star banners in their home windows, support Gold Star Mothers and build memorials to honor fallen heroes.
