From the Commander

Your American Legion Family has surpassed 650 members! Five short years ago we stood at 386. Our growth is based on our support of our Veterans, and our community. The core belief of our family is simple. “It’s not about the organization, it’s about the Veteran”. Please : “Just Ask” someone to join our Family today.

Our 100th Anniversary Book, with the history of our Legion is available for sale at the post for $3.00. We can also ship a copy for $6.00. We are working with PBS on developing an updated 100th Anniversary CD. We plan on building on the one we released roughly one year ago.

Our ALR (American Legion Riders) are looking for new members. You only have to own a motorcycle, and be a Legionnaire, Auxiliary or Sons member of ANY Legion.

I’m building on our Anniversary by continuing the writing of a book dedicated to our history, our founders and the beginnings of our military community. As a part of this, I’m working on a section devoted to those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, from Lewis County. Any and all information should be emailed to sarge8488@aol.com. Written responses are preferred, although any form of information would be appreciated. Pictures are strongly encouraged. This book is a continuation of what we previously published.

On May 18th the Veterans of our community have been invited to participate in an Armed Forces Day Parade in Watertown. Families are encouraged to come as well. Lewis, Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties have been selected as a “Great American Defense Community” (last year the award went to San Diego, CA). Following the parade the Watertown American Legion will be hosting a luncheon.
