Veterans Day speech available

A guidelined speech for Veterans Day (Nov. 11), drafted by The American Legion’s Public Relations Division, is now available online by clicking here. The PR division drafts speeches for various patriotic national holidays as a way for Legion members to go out into their communities and emphasize what The American Legion represents, or to just observe the day with post ceremonies. The speeches are not meant to be recited verbatim. Instead, members are greatly encouraged to amend them as they see fit, in whatever way they feel best relates the Legion’s message to their audience.

All posts are encouraged to upload recaps and photos of their Veterans Day celebrations and other community activities to the blog Legiontown USA. 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.
