American Legion posts and family members provide service year-round to veterans and their families, active-duty servicemembers, youth and community members. And The American Legion wants to hear these stories.
The Legiontown U.S.A. website has recently undergone a redesign that showcases multiple stories at once, allows Legion Family members to feature links to YouTube videos created by them, and enables stories to be shared throughout social media. This nationwide sharing will promote the many ways Legion Family members dedicate themselves to a cause greater than themselves.
The Legion wants you to share your good experiences, whether it’s welcome-home celebrations for returning servicemembers, membership drives, honor and rememberance stories, visiting patients at a VA hospital, sponsoring young men and women to Boys and Girls State, hosting fundraisers, donating to Legion charities, or converting a post into a makeshift shelter for victims affected by a natural disaster. Posts, Sons of The American Legion squadrons and Auxiliary units are turning an ordinary community into a Legiontown every day.
For many Legion Family members, these services go unnoticed, but not for those who share their stories on Legiontown — www.legiontown.org. The sharing of stories provides inspiration to posts, squadrons and units located throughout the country on how to promote the Legion in their communities.
Registration is free.
