In the July issue of The American Legion Dispatch, National Adjutant Daniel S. Wheeler wrote about how the Department of Wyoming has stepped up in support of current servicemembers and their families, as well as the state's veterans. From providing military honors at funerals to shipping 10 tons of care packages overseas to deployment servicemembers, the department is doing a lot in carrying out the mission of The American Legion.
But Wyoming's story is just one of what are dozens, if not hundreds of similar stories of troop support, community involvement and veterans advocacy that posts, districts and departments are providing throughout the nation.
We want to know these stories; more importantly, we want to share them in the "What Are We Doing Today" section of legion.org. Email what your post, district or department is doing to multimedia editor Steve B. Brooks, preferably in advance of the event or program. We want to make the "What We Are Doing Today" section of the website reflective of what the entire American Legion is doing - not just National Headquarters.
