A guidelined speech for Memorial Day has been drafted by The American Legion’s Public Relations staff and made available on Legion.org 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'm disgusted by the attitude that I see in some Veterans Organizations neighborhood Posts that discriminate against minorities and women. Sorry to see that some Posts have evolved into old white guys clubs but that is just not representative of what the Military is comprised of. The local American Legion Posts should promote patriotism and community service.

I hope they are not Members of the American Legion, the SAL, the Auxilary or the Legion Riders. Otherwise I concur...
