For too long, veterans have wondered why only those who served during designated wartime eras could join The American Legion. We mean it when we answer, “It takes an act of Congress.”
Millions came home from wartime service, took off their uniforms, pulled on American Legion caps and devoted themselves to community, state and nation.
The American Legion has celebrated “April is Children & Youth Month” for the past 81 years.
The fact that the Pay Our Coast Guard Act did not fly through Congress is nothing short of bipartisan failure.
