Some water did seep through the walls of the hall from the flood waters! Mud filled the chicken pits storage room too! Thank you all who helped with cleaning the hall/chicken pits storage and working to restore it back to its original condition after the flood!! Also, thank you to the ones who put sand bags at the doors of the hall, this saved us from a major catastrophe!!

Congress and the White House agree to expand definition of war eras to include all who served since Dec. 7, 1941.

More than 1,600 members of the U.S. Armed Forces were killed or wounded in periods of time not designated as war eras since the end of World War II. The newly signed Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act of 2019 – The LEGION Act – honors those veterans, their spouses and descendants, extending membership eligibility in The American Legion Family to hundreds of thousands who had previously been excluded. The LEGION Act offers American Legion membership eligibility to any U.S. military veteran who served at least one day of active military duty since Dec. 7, 1941, and was honorably discharged or is serving now. The act also affects membership in the American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion, expanding eligibility for those groups, as well.

Adjutant Notes

American Flags For Sale From The Legion

Don’t forget that Post 116 has flags available for sale to any member as well as anyone in our Community or beyond. This can be a great fundraiser for the American Legion so spread the word and don’t forget the Legion when you need to order a flag. The 3’ x 5’ flags are $25.00.

Proper Disposal Of The American Flag

There is a proper ceremony for the disposal of the American Flag, which usually involves collecting up all of the unserviceable flags, an inspection by the Sergeant at Arms followed by burning. Such an event will be held on September 11th at Chaseburg Post 202 and  Hillsboro Vernon County Meeting

. We had our flags retired at this ceremony. We collect flags from throughout the community through our flag disposal drop box. It is located in the parking lot at the southwest corner of the banquet hall. Please use this for disposing your flags and let your friends and neighbors know about this as well.

Legion Jackets

Legion Jackets are being ordered soon! Let Charlie Nelson know what size you want at the August Legion meeting or call him at #608-317-7065. Cost will be around $80.
