September 16th American Legion Day

Congress declared there should be a day to honor those soldiers returning from World War 1 in 1919. It was finally actually declared, and created, to be September 16th in 2009. Of course today it includes any American soldier that has served over seas during any time of war, or even during peace. There are over 3 million members in some 14,000 posts across the United States. It is a place where old friends and fellow veterans can get together to remember both the victories, and the losses they share together.

How to celebrate – Honor a veteran. Make today special for any Legions in your area. Search your families history for Veterans of Foreign Wars.
