Legionnaire’s who are still at large on record as Members of Post 100.
We are following up on emails and postcards that went out to Arizona Legionnaires who are still on record assigned to Arizona but not yet to a local Post.
We are here at Tucson today and tomorrow morning, 12/2 and 12/3, sending emails and making calls to try to help you make a choice for a local Post. I hope there is an American Legion Post close to you to pick from. We will be trying more from Post 1 in Phoenix on 12/4-6/2017.
As soon as you joined our rolls, you added strength to our voice as Veterans, for Veterans when we call on Capitol Hill. Choosing a local Post will strengthen us locally, as a larger part of your annual dues will remain closer to home instead of statewide.
Even still, you are helping all over Arizona in many of our American Legion programs. Activities like Americanism, with activity like Boys State and American Legion Baseball; Emergency Financial Assistance to the children of our members in temporary distress; Advocating for strong National Security and Veterans Benefits on Capitol hill.
If you are able to soon, please check around your area and visit local Posts to pick from the one whose projects and personalities match closest to your needs as a Veteran Still Serving America.
Many of the Post activities occur outside of open hours of member’s only canteen, so be sure to call ahead so that a leader there may best help with Q&A.
Transferring into a Post is easy and changing from Post to Post until you find your “home” is not a problem. If you remain in the AZ Post 100, please be advised that the annual dues will soon be rising higher than those of a local Post. Official notice will come before that happens.
Finally, please be sure to bring your discharge verification documents for the Post to confirm your Veteran identity. Some Posts also secure a copy for their member’s future need. Please check with the Post.
Good Luck with finding your Post soon!
Thanks for a few moments here.
Thank you for your service.
Thank you for your work in Arizona’s Largest Veterans Service Organization.
