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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
