Enter the Legion’s Facebook photo contest

Do you take pictures at your post events, or at patriotic services and parades? Do you stop the car every now and then to capture an image of a particular breathtaking American flag? Or do you attend welcome-home celebrations for returning servicemembers and occasionally capture that emotionally powerful moment when husband and wife, or parent and child are reunited?

If so, we want to see your photos. Each month we’ll put out a request for specific types of photos – patriotic, welcome-home events, post activities, etc. – and ask you to post them to The American Legion National Headquarters Facebook timeline. The photo that receives the most "likes" each month will be published in The American Legion Magazine.

The rules are simple: the photo must be your original work, and by submitting it, you are giving The American Legion the right to reprint the photo in The American Legion Magazine.

The August photo submission contest features the theme of post activities. Give us a photo of one of your post events – dinners, membership drives, fundraisers, etc. – and whichever one gets the most "likes" will be featured in a future issue of The American Legion Magazine.
