This cover of the first official organ of The American Legion emphasizes the unemployment problem facing many ex-soldiers during the post-war recession.
TO BE OR NOT TO BE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE QUESTION ?
To be a member of a Veterans Service origination such as The American Legion was what you asked yourself when you joined, but did you ask yourself what can I do for this origination? Should I just pay my dues and hope it is enough to help Veterans or my community or should I get involved and take part in it’s operation and programs? Here at Post 419 we do appreciate your membership but we would love to get to know you and your family and not just your name on the membership list. As you have seen in many of our newsletters, we have functions here at the post which are intended to raise funds to help veterans or other non-profits which specifically help veterans. Yes, we also rent our facility to the general public to use to help offset expenses to operate and maintain the facility.
