A moment in time

How does National help posts mark patriotic holidays and anniversaries like Pearl Harbor Day?

By making available suggested speeches composed by the Public Relations Division. These speeches are not meant to be recited verbatim, but are instead intended as a starting point for speakers. They are encouraged to tailor their message to the specific audience.

The PR Division composes these speeches for the Legion’s birthday, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Patriot Day (as remarks inside a special Sept. 11 event-planning guide), Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day. In the "good old days," the speeches were only available via mail to a subscriber list. Today, however, the Internet has made them available to everyone free of charge, via the Publications page (www.legion.org/publications) on the national website.

The Pearl Harbor Day speech can be downloaded directly here. Feel free to bookmark the Publications page to have immediate access to the 2013 speeches as they are released.
