POST HISTORY(continued)

Affiliated Organizations

 The Legion has every reason to be proud of its Auxiliary, which gained statewide recognition because of its programs of service. Auxiliary members are always anxious and willing to cooperate in every Legion activity.

PATRIOTIC DAYS

MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events , the grave of every veteran of any of the wars of the country are decorated on this National Holiday. Today, this tradition is being carried on. If one might attempt to prophecy, in an historical account, veteran organizations will carry on this tradition to its last man to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead.

ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War One. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all veterans. 

REGISTRATION OF GRAVES

 Each year, together with the VFW, active members of both organizations place a flag on each veteran's grave.
