2011 Veterans Day speech available

A suggested Veterans Day speech, prepared by the Legion's Public Relations Division at National Headquarters, is available here  in PDF form, and is also available in Word format here. All patriotic-holiday speeches prepared by the PR Division are meant only as starting places, for members delivering a speech either publicly or just at the post to amend as they see fit, in whatever way they feel best relates the Legion's message to the audience.

Stay tuned for announcements of major Veterans Day events, as well as of Legion participation at these events. All posts are encouraged to upload recaps and photos of their Veterans Day celebrations, and other community activities, to the Legiontown USA blog. Legiontown is a place for Legionnaires to tell the stories of all the good they do, every day, and see how other Legionnaires across the country are doing the same.
