Post Certification of Officers - Word Horizontal Draft

Article 5, Section 12.

Posts failing to submit the forms on a timely basis will be placed on probation by the Department Executive Committee.


Centennial Celebration

In a few years (2019), The American Legion will celebrate 100 years of dedicated and loyal service to America and all of America's veterans. This is a rare moment in time when we can look back on all the good things The American Legion has done, not for a few years or a few decades, but for 100 years!

As the date of our Legion's 100th Birthday approaches, we have a great opportunity to reach out to the veteran community and our local communities to tell them about The American Legion, all over again. The Centennial gives us a valid excuse to "toot our horn" and let everyone know The American Legion is alive and doing well!

How do we "toot our horn" to maximize our exposure, while keeping the cost to a minimum? Here are a few ideas for your post to consider:

The American Legion Centennial Resources

The American Legion has developed several Centennial resources, become familiar with them and use them to help get your post's story told. A visit to the Centennial.Legion.Org web site is good place to start:

Legacy Merchandise
Tell Your Post's Story

Tell your post's story to your members and your local community as often as you can and in as many ways as you can.

  • Include articles on the Legion Centennial in your post newsletter and Facebook page.
  • Publish stories about your own post's history in local newspapers.
  • In your post fliers, for events of all kinds, include a copy of the Centennial logo as a reminder.
  • Send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper telling about The American Legion Centennial and your post's history.
  • Conduct a Post Open House to help celebrate the centennial.
  • If your post develops a centennial shirt (hint - centennial shirt sales can be a post fundraiser) ask your members to wear their centennial shirt and their Legion cap in any pictures being sent to media outlets for publication.
  • Legacy Meets Vision

    The American Legion Centennial Celebration is not only about honoring the past 100 years of our history, but also preparing to continue our legacy of service. Events and activities at posts all around the world will showcase The American Legion "Still Serving America."

    Riders Hit 2,000 Chapters Nationwide

    Growth is nothing new to The American Legion Riders. Each year the Riders have broken records for funds raised during the annual Legacy Run. That extended to last summer, when the Riders brought in more than $1.2 million for the fund that provides college scholarships for the children of parents who died while on active-duty military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the children of post-9/11 veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs disability rating of 50 percent or higher.

    But the Riders aren’t growing just in terms of money they’ve raised. Recently, the number of American Legion Rider chapters hit 2,000 nationwide. Since March 31 alone, 115 chapters have been formed – an average of more than 40 a month. The Riders continue to be the fastest-growing program in The American Legion.
