These resolutions are now available to view in the Legion’s Digital Archive; see the full collection here. Resolution No. 1 is a special reaffirmation of the Legion’s purpose and philosophies nearly 100 years after its founding; formal printed copies were made available to delegates and others in attendance.

In addition to these most current resolutions, the Digital Archive contains all active Legion resolutions from 1950 to the present.

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
