2018 Consolidated Post Report numbers online

E-mail Print PDF

The 2017-2018 American Legion Consolidated Post Report (CPR) has been tabulated, and the results posted on www.legion.org/bythenumbers. The survey, which a post fills out to document its external activities from May 31-June 1 of each year, is collected by National Headquarters to help quantify – for Legion media, national leadership and more – the good that American Legion posts do in their communities every year.

The traditional due date for CPRs is July 1, but a low (61 percent) reporting rate led the date to be extended this year to Aug. 15. A final total of 8,649 posts submitted reports, a 66 percent rate.

The 2018-2019 CPR will be available later this year; posts can print and send in physical copies, or submit it via myLegion.org.

Did you know?

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.
