Deadline to submit Consolidated Post Reports extended

E-mail Print PDF

The American Legion’s 2017-2018 Consolidated Post Report (CPR), which documents every activity a post fulfills in a 12-month (June 1-May 31) reporting period, was due July 1. Only 61 percent of the 12,803 total posts worldwide submitted a CPR.





It is important for the CPR response rate to increase so that the great work American Legion posts and members are doing in their communities and beyond is shared – whether it’s providing funeral honors, sponsoring youth to attend a Legion program, conducting fundraising efforts or more. The deadline to submit the CPR has been extended until Aug. 15 in an effort to build the annual report that will be delivered to Congress by the national commander.

A fillable 2017-2018 CPR form can be accessed here and submitted by mail. Or, the CPR can easily be completed and submitted through myLegion.org; it's located under "Post and Department" options.

The Departments of Delaware and Montana achieved 100 percent reporting. They will receive a plaque from National Commander Denise H. Rohan on stage during the 100th National Convention in Minneapolis in August.

Military Funeral Honors ceremonies must be scheduled in advance.

The law requires that every eligible veteran receive a military funeral honors ceremony, which includes the folding and presentation of the United States flag and the playing of “taps,” upon the family’s request. This Department of Defense program calls for the funeral director to request military funeral honors on behalf of the veteran’s family.
