Share your family's story of Legion leadership

E-mail Print PDF

As The American Legion readies to kick off its 15-month Centennial Celebration, it is looking for stories of extraordinary Legion service by generations of families.

For example, we are looking for stories of multiple generations of family members who have served as commanders at the same post. Or spouses who are currently serving in post leadership roles. Perhaps a current member is serving in a post leadership role that was held earlier by other family members.





To share your family's story of American Legion service and leadership, please visit www.Legiontown.org and select "Family History." Please also upload a photo. Submissions will be reviewed by an editor and considered for publication on the national website, www.legion.org, and in The American Legion Magazine.
