LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Changes allow American Legion to bring in new members

For those of you who do not know, not every veteran can join the American Legion. There are (were) certain dates you had to serve in to qualify.

That has all been changed with both the House and Senate passing a law that allows any veteran honorably serving since World War II (1941) to join the Legion. HURRAY.

The President only has to sign it. With the way he supports the veterans, this should be a no brainer.

So, for all you veterans out there that feel left out, you can give me a call at (712) 464-7232. Let’s get you in the Legion.

 

Thanks,

Gary Fahan,

Lake City American Legion Post 31

 

Editor’s Note: The LEGION (Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service) Act will allow any honorably discharged veterans eligibility for American Legion membership. This includes veterans who served during periods of peacetime between wars.
