The American Legion

Patriotism. Service. Fraternity.

It's a powerful package!

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.

It's a program of involvement in the many facets of your life.

It's a program which can have a positive influence in the lives of you and your family.

It's a program of promise!

The Department of Alaska stretches from the far north in Koyukuk,

throughout the State of Alaska and includes the Pacific District of Guam, Japan and Taiwan.

That's a lot of ground to cover! With our new and revamped website we can make that distance a lot smaller.

Note from Diane:

Articles for the Legionnaire need to be formatted as follows:

Example: Kirk Waldhaus-2nd Vice-Jan/Feb article. Saving it in that manner saves me a lot of time. Time I can use to proof those articles. Thanks in advance. Happy writing!

in: MSWord, 12 point and Garamond font. NO bold letters please. NO underlining. In the email Subject line I would like it to start: YOUR NAME - And your position, & Jan/Feb article Legionnaire (ie: Scott Kline - Commander-Jan/Feb article-Legionnaire). This makes it easier to file and locate. ALSO.. when you save it to word PLEASE oh PLEASE save it in the same format as I requested previously. Your name, position and March/April (or whichever months).

Legionnaire: Opting-out

That simply means that you are saving a tree and reading the paper online. Good for you! Online is in color and better looking than the black and white copy. Opting out does not mean I will be sending the copy to you via your email. It simply means you will be coming here to the site and scrolling on the left to click on "NEWS".
