NALPA: What's coming

Youth program participants. Thousands of American youths will be participating in American Legion Family youth programs this summer, including Boys and Girls Nation and American Legion Baseball. This represents a great opportunity to share photos of them on your social media channels.

Use social media during national convention. For those of you attending this year’s 99th American Legion national convention in Reno, Nev., this is an excellent time to showcase Legion activities to your followers on Facebook and Twitter. Use #ALConvention as part of your social media posts related to convention.

Remembering 9/11. September 11 brings another solemn day. If your post, unit or squadron is participating in a remembrance event, share appropriate photos with your social media followers.

POW/MIA Day. On September 15 Americans are asked to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by the military men and women who are imprisoned or unaccounted for as a result of their military service. Use #POWMIADay for your posts related to this day of honor.
