To the Editor:
If you are on active duty today, National Guard or Reserve, or have served during any eligible war eras, you are a veteran and you’re eligible to become a Legionnaire.

Surely you have heard of The American Legion. We are veterans just like you who care about America, the serving military, veterans and their families and our nation’s youth. We are over 2 million strong. The Legion has for nearly 100 years served as a voice in Washington dedicated to preserving the rights we have all earned — and were promised — by our service to the nation. As veterans we continue to serve our communities, state and nation.

The American Legion is America’s largest veterans service organization. We’re fighting for reasonable active duty pay, future retired Cost of Living Allowance, better military housing, improved VA hospitals and satisfactory medical care.

We work to not only protect and improve benefits for veterans, but more importantly, we are working to make our communities better through our many programs including those that teach Americanism and good citizenship to our youth.

One great benefit is the satisfaction and opportunity for serving our community. The comradeship and value of continuing to work with fellow veterans cannot be underestimated.

We invite you to join us now. The American Legion needs to continue to be there for the nation and veteran families.

“Still serving America!”
