Currently, there are 11 department awards and 6 national awards; in many cases, posts can compete for awards simply by completing their Consolidated Post Report on time. Some department awards that require additional action by the post commander have been broken down into membership population making it “fairer” for the smaller posts.
Please take the time (before you receive the awards package from department) to review the attached documents – these are not all the awards available. Legionnaire of the Year Award and Outstanding (Post/District) History Book Award have been singled out, because in the past, they generate more questions.
