On the Knowledge is Power Tour Uniform Cap Etiquette The left side (emblem side) of the cap is reserved only for the Legion emblem, city, county, district, or state lettering. If desired, the following items must be placed on the right side of the cap: Additional lettering, restricted to either the name of a Post or to an officer title, such as Past Commander Cap insignias or badges for past or present officers Consecutive membership insignia, membership stars, and/or authorized Legion or military service decorations Names or nicknames of individual members cannot be used on caps. The Legion uniform cap should be worn by its members only when in attendance at official Legion meetings or ceremonies or as official guests at patriotic or other civil functions or by individuals when officially representing The American Legion on public occasions. A member is considered to be in uniform if wearing an official Legion uniform cap. Therefore it is not proper to wear the cap while eating a meal at an official Legion or civic luncheon or dinner. The cap should be worn in a place of worship only by the Guard of Honor, Color Guard, and Commander of same while in marching order or standing guard. When returned to and seated in pews, the cap should be removed. Legion posts marching in formation into a place of worship should uncover at the door, hold the cap with the right hand over the heart until the arrival in the pews and commanded to take seats, remaining uncovered during the entire service. At the close of the service, upon command, the post shall arise, the members holding the cap with the right hand over the heart will march out of the place of worship and recover after marching through the door. Legion members not in formation will uncover upon entering the place of worship and remain uncovered during the entire service and will recover after leaving the place of worship. When at a funeral, the cap should be held over the heart as one approaches the casket and is not at any time worn in a place of worship (except by the Guard of Honor, Color Guard, or Commander of same while in marching order or standing guard.) At the graveside, the cap should be held in the right hand over the heart during the entire service. In cold and inclement weather, the cap should not be worn. In Legion meetings, the cap should be worn except during moments of the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer, and when standing in silent reverence in memory of departed comrades, when the cap should be held with the right hand over the heart. Female members of the Legion should wear their caps in the manner prescribed for female personnel of the armed services. - View Post

Why should you join the American Legion? Each year, American Legion department service officers help thousands of veterans receive VA benefits they earned through service to their country. The Legion conducts, promotes and supports hundreds of career fairs for veterans and transitioning service members, bringing employers face to face with job hunters. Through Operation Comfort Warriors, the Legion raises funds to provide comfort items for U.S. troops recovering in military hospitals and transition units worldwide. Legion staff lobbies Congress for better quality of life for U.S. military personnel. Through American Legion Baseball, nearly 100,000 young men get to experience teamwork and competition each year. The Legion provides more than $138,000 in scholarships through The National American Legion High School Oratorical Contest. And Legion Riders, through the annual Legacy Run, have raised millions of dollars for the Legacy Scholarship, helping ensure the children of U.S. service members killed or that have been declared more than 50% disabled on or after Sept. 11, 2001, have a chance at a college education. There are so many reasons to join that they all can't be listed here. None of these facts may be news to active Legionnaires, but chances are most prospective members do not realize all The American Legion does for people of all ages at the local, state and national levels. Now, it’s much easier to share that information with those prospective members. Stop into your local American Legion post. Talk to the members. Find out what they do. You may just want to sign up right then. I AM 1, R U? - View Post

We are not a "Drinking Club"! (Old School of thought.) Service Organizations help to lobby for Veteran benefits, help them file their claims (then represent them on appeals), get them to appointments or help out in emergencies. We're often, a first line for many Veteran's when they can't think about where to go. We support many other charitable causes in our local communities. So, if you're a Veteran, and have been on the fence about joining, well....get off the damn fence and join! Know that your membership dues go to help our Brother's and Sister's, along with their families! If you're already a member, of any Service Organization, Thank You for continuing to serve others! - View Post

Folks, this is a public service message. If your loved one was a Veteran, LEO, Fire, or EMS and you would like to have the American Legion Riders assist with their funeral we have to be invited. Always an honor to assist, but never go where we aren't invited by a family member. - View Post

I knew the poppies were for our fallen soldiers, but I had no idea of the true meaning! Today I saw a man selling poppies stop a lady and asked if he could reposition her poppy. While doing so he told that lady she should wear the poppy on their right side; the red represents the blood of all those who gave their lives, the black represents the mourning of those who didn't have their loved ones return home, and the green leaf represents the grass and crops growing and future prosperity after the war destroyed so much. The leaf should be positioned at 11 o'clock to represent the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the time that World War One formally ended. He was worried that younger generations wouldn't understand this and his generation wouldn't be around for much longer to teach them. (copy and paste to share just like I did) 🌹 we must remember those from our current wars too! - View Post
