Post history pages pass 3,000

E-mail Print PDF





Five years after its release at the 2013 American Legion national convention in Houston, the number of pages on the Centennial Celebration post history platform has surpassed 3,000.

Any Legion post, no matter its age, can start a page and fill it with its history – through descriptions, timeline items, photo galleries and more. Notable members and notable accomplishments alike are encouraged.

This functionality will remain as the Centennial Celebration site transitions into the updated and expanded Legacy & Vision site. Slated for release this fall, the new site will serve as a one-stop shop for accessing both the history (legacy) and future (vision) of The American Legion. It will include links to the memorials database, the Digital Archive, founding documents of the Legion, news, events and more. But the URL will remain the same: www.legion.org/centennial.
