In recognition of The American Legion's 90th birthday, the Senate and House of Representatives passed a resolution designating Sept. 16 as “American Legion Day." The measure was shepherded through the Senate by then Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, who praised the Legion for its continued aid to wounded veterans and military families, legacy of community volunteerism and significant role in establishing important national legislation. Posts are encouraged to get a proclamation from their town or city mayor, designating locally Sept. 16 as American Legion Day.
