Re The American Legion — 94th birthday 2013
We are the largest veterans’ organization, and we are celebrating our 94th birthday on March 15.
We were founded on four pillars — Veterans, Youth, National Defense and Americanism
Milestones are author of the GI Bill of Rights Act of 1944; creation of the Department of Veteran Affairs; supporters of Scouting since 1919 (boys and girls); American Legion baseball; Junior Shooting; Boys and Girls State; JrROTC; Oratorical program; supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network; American Legion’s legacy scholarship; Operation Comfort Warriors Program; and American Legion Riders.
We, the Legionnaires, the Woman’s Auxiliary, and the Son’s of the American Legion would like to thank the citizens of Greenville and Hunt County for supporting the American Legion Posts in Greenville, Commerce, Wolfe City and West Tawakoni, as we support our fellow veteran’s and the citizens of Hunt County.

What is rescue all about?
Rescue is a calling for most people.
Who are we backing?
It is amazing that President Obama, who only five years ago was the staunch anti-war (and anti-Bush) freshman Senator from Illinois, is now whole-heartedly throwing his support behind Syrian rebels to topple the Assad regime.
A big thank you
A huge THANK YOU to the many people who stopped by our booth at Rally Round Greenville.
Top notch crew
On Saturday morning, Sept. 14, I had a TIA. I was sure that was what it was because my right arm felt like lead.
Thank you for your help
It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville.
Medal finally awarded to Murphy
Governor Rick Perry this past week awarded the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor to America’s “most decorated” combat soldier of WWII Audie Murphy.
