Share your Veterans Day plans with us

Veterans Day, Nov. 11, is the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I in 1918, and today a holiday to honor all veterans. American Legion posts, districts and departments observe Veterans Day by participating in or hosting parades, luncheons, ceremonies and more.

With Veterans Day a little more than one month away, many American Legion posts are well into planning for various ceremonies and events. Once again, The American Legion National Media & Communications Division is looking for potential coverage opportunities.

If your post, district or department is hosting, sponsoring or participating in a Veterans Day event, please share it with us. Email with details that include the time, date, location and what the event will entail. We’ll be looking for events to cover in person; other events may be featured in an advance Veterans Day story and follow-up after the events have concluded.

Posts, districts and departments also are encouraged to share stories and photos of their Veterans Day events on Legiontown

National Headquarters staff also has prepared a guideline Veterans Day speech available for download here. It is only a guide; posts are encouraged to tailor it to their respective ceremony or event.
