Legion Post Leadership Disgrace
 
No support for scouting and scouts youth self esteem.
 
Protected by a Post leadership right to do whatever they wish to a Boy Scout Eagle Project
 
The Post are in their rights to do what they did but the wiseacres that decided this
are wrong. 
 
Since 1919 American Legion National has pushed for support of scouting youth.
So, How can you expect youth to take pride in their donated work and repeat
this as a "DO A GOOD TURN DAILY" when you pull the rug out from under their
accomplishments.
 
Not allowing a public display of recognition to honor the Town Folks, scouters, and
scouts who provided you handicap facilities that your own membership failed to
deliver for over 50 years and then removal of the Eagle Scout Project Plaques.
 
The leadership lacks support for scouting, all they do is say the words we don't
want you to leave, and then they pull this.
 
Bring back the old leadership, at least they are life long scouting supporters
in words and deeds for well over 30 years.  Support scouting as you are expected by American Legion National
and really help build the leadership of tomorrow and stop trying to destroy it.   
 
I have never in my life met so many mean spirited people.
 
With age comes wisdom, but not at this post.
 
 

 

AMERICAN LEGION NATIONAL

Scouting Program

Support for the Boy Scout movement came at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country.

Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.

The American Legion Emblem

"There shines the Emblem of The American Legion, it is your badge of distinction, honor and service. It stands for God and Country, and the highest rights of man. Of its several parts, each has a meaning."

The Rays of the Sun form the background of our proud Emblem, and suggest that the Legion's principles will dispel the darkness of violence and evil.

The Wreath forms the center, in loving memory of those brave comrades who gave their lives in the service of the United States, that liberty might endure.

The Star - victory symbol of World War I, signalizes as well honor, glory and constancy.

The letters U.S. leave no doubt as to the brightest star in the Legion's star.

Two Large Rings the outer one stands for the rehabilitation of our sick and disabled buddies.

The inner one denotes the welfare of America's children.

Two Small Rings set upon the star.

The outer pledges loyalty and Americanism.

The inner is for service to our communities, our states and the Nation.

The words American Legion tie the whole together for truth, remembrance, constancy, honor, service, veterans affairs and rehabilitation, children and youth, loyalty, and Americanism.

The Story Of The Poppy
 

The Poppy was first chosen as the American legion's memorial flower at the 1921 National Convention and was worn in memory of the men who lost their lives in World War I.
 

Picture vast armies on two sides in a long four year battle, along a double line of trenches.

This was Europe from 1914 to November 11, 1918.

In this area of death and destruction, hundreds of thousands of American boys advanced in 1917 and 1918 determined to put an end to the horrible war.

You all know the story of how they did end the war, restoring peace and liberty to subjected peoples.

But, many thousands of fine young lives were required to complete the task.
 

The one bright color of the shell torn fields and hills of these war-torn area was the little, red poppy.

On the edges of the trenches, in the ragged shell holes, brave little poppies grew and bloomed on the graves of those men buried in the sacred plots of French soil, which was Flanders Field.

Remembrances of the cheery bright red flowers returned to America with our boys.

And so, the poppy became the symbol of the dead, their memorial flower.

it became the sign that the high ideals for which these brave young men gave their lives, still alive, and are honored.

Soon a double significance was attached to our memorial poppy.

Disabled Veterans quickly learned and assembled poppies while growing well again.

the American Legion and Auxiliary are united in our efforts to help those hospitalized veterans within our state.

Through the months, cut materials are delivered to these Veterans and soon boxes of bright red poppies are ready for a big distribution in May.

And when payday arrives, what a thrill to receive their pay for a job well done!

And what a joy it is to wear a poppy made by a Disabled Veterans, when you know the money it brought him filled and desperate need.

All money taken in over expenses is returned to the Veterans and their families through our service program.

Since the wars, we find our organizations carrying on for another generation.

At the present time, thousands of veterans are confined to beds in hospitals and we have not as yet reached a peak of hospitalization.

By the time Poppy day arrives, many more Veterans will be added.
 

That is why each year, prior to memorial day, millions of Americans wear little red poppies in memory of those who have died in all wars and to assist in the rehabilitation of those Veterans who are now hospitalized suffering from wounds and illness.

This is the story of our Memorial Poppy, millions of which are distributed by unpaid, volunteer workers on Poppy Day. Please remember these Veterans by wearing a Poppy.
