I was looking up a business to do some gutter work on my house and I wondered if anyone in the post had a gutter business.  After realizing that there was no way for me to know that, I thought it would be useful to have a web page dedicated for advertising Post members Business'.   That would include your immidiate famly member's business's also.    There would still be a small fee for advertisements on other pages.    Oh, by the way, any post 21 members out there that do gutters?     Paul                                    
WARNING - Phishing Telephone Calls to American Legion Members
Several members have indicated they were called by someone claiming to represent The American Legion -- specifically National Adjutant Dan Wheeler -- requesting the member’s checking account number so they could make a donation to The American Legion.  Anyone making such a call is operating a scam.
The American Legion National Headquarters has not and will never call members requesting this type of information!
Radio Kenosha WLIP
HOT!  Lou Rugani has donated his two hour spot on Friday August  23 to Post 21.  Join him and his guests Commander Larry Lewens, and First Vice Commander Crystal Carter at 3pm to 5pm on 1050 AM, WLIP.  I'm looking forward to hearing what Kenosha's unofficial historian has to say about the history of the American Legion in Kenosha.

Chaplain's Corner
Our post Chaplain, David DeBerge, has a youtube channel!  He interviewed our Post Finance Officer, Tom Visintainer on July 25th. It's very infomative!  Check it out here!
