The American Legion Celebrates 94th Birthday


Happy 94th Birthday To
The American Legion!

On March 15,1919, the first American Legion caucus, held by members of the American Expeditionary Force, convened in Paris.

In October of 1923, the very first meeting of American Legion Post 33 was held in Morrisville, Vermont.  We will soon be celebrating our 91st birthday “For God and Country” and “Still in service to Veterans”.

In Vermont, we were honored by an official visit from American Legion National Commander, Jim Koutz on March 1st.

American Legion National Commander, Jim Koutz (R), Was Welcomed By Department of Vermont Commander, Stan Garland (L) in Montpelier March 1st.

Now let’s get to the good part!

(And the crowd ROARS!  “We Want Dell…We Want Dell” or words to that effect).

L to R – Post 33 Commander, Roland Cleveland, Northern Area Commander candidate, Fred Latour, Post 33 Adjutant Dell Hill, and District 3 Commander candidate, Paul Raymond enjoy the formal presentation of The American Legion Eagle Award, presented to the first post in the state to achieve 100% membership renewal for 2013.  (The Adjutant does all the work, but I share the glory with my fellow Veterans.)

Needless to say, I’m proud of my service to my Country as a member of the United States Army, and equally proud that I’m able to continue in service, through The American Legion, to our Veterans and their families.

To the millions of American Legion members everywhere in the world, Happy 94th Birthday!
