From the American Legion website article; War Era Debate: A Veteran is a Veteran A post by the National Adjutant "The question needs to be asked: Are the vast majority of people who have served during wartime and not been shot at any less
of a veteran of that war than those who were on the front line?
Are they not entitled to be called and to think of themselves as War Veterans? Is there something curiously less than acceptable about
their service? Should they be not proud that they served? Do they stand in the shadow of those whom they supported? Are they like the red-haired stepchild? If 90 percent of those who enlist
are going to end up being "less than real veterans," why should they bother? On the other hand, the hand of God or Uncle Sam can at any moment change one of those guys' statuses, and that guy has no control
over what happened. Nonetheless, when called, he was ready. He trained just as hard as the next guy, and was just as willing as the next guy to go where sent. These are real questions and they go
right to the heart of honorable military service."
So all of you veterans, who served during the appropriate times as set forth in the American Legion requirements,
please join us.
You are very welcomed!

Notice The ballots for the proposal to ask District Ten to consider changing the eligibility requirements for membership in the American Legion were
tallied at the July 8th meeting of the Executive Committee.
Seventy one ballots were sent out and fourty eight were returned. None came back as undeliverable. Thats a 67% return which, in my opinion,
is impressive. The results are: 24 votes in favor and 24 votes opposed. A two thirds vote was required for passage. The resolution failed so the Post will not sponsor this change.
