Let us know your Memorial Day plans

Let us know your Memorial Day plans

From Alaska to Florida and Massachusetts to California – and stops in between –American Legion Family members again ensure Memorial Day Weekend was a special in their communities in 2023.

Across the nation, Legion Family members led Memorial Day observances, including traditional ceremonies at the posts, visits to area cemeteries to honor the veterans buried there, conducting parades and staging motorcycle rides.

As American Legion Family members plan for Memorial Day 2024, please keep us in mind. Let us know how you are planning on observing this sacred holiday. Email sbrooks@legion.org with details about your plans. We may feature your efforts in our national media channels.

Also, American Legion posts are encouraged to upload recaps and photos of their Memorial Day celebrations and other community activities to Legiontown.org. Legion Family members also are urged to share a story, photo or even upload a video about whom you will be thinking about and honoring on this sacred day.

And a reminder that an American Legion Memorial Day speech for 2024 is available for American Legion departments, districts and posts to use for Memorial Day events.

The speech is available here and is not meant to be recited verbatim; members are greatly encouraged to amend it to taste and audience.
