First District Annual Silent March

Calling all Local Legionaries. Let’s make this year’s silent march one to remember!

The Smith’s visit Post 21!

This past Monday, April 25th, the Post was fortunate to host two of our active duty members. Coincidentally, they are sisters! ALA member Wendy Smith daughters Army Specialist Samantha Nicole Smith and Marine DI Sargent Gabrielle Renea Ortega were both home at the same time. That has to be rare (but hopefully not in Wendy’s case)! Thanks for stopping by.

Wendy provided some other photos as well…

Marine Drill Sergent Inspects Post 21

It’s always great to hear about our active duty members, but this one is extra awesome. ALA Member Wendy Smiths daughter Gabrelle had her 1st day as a DI 3-18-22 @ MCRD San Diego. They called her “The Scary Hat”. Mom’s pretty proud, and so are we!

Commander Visintainer is Kenosha’s Hometown Hero of the Year!

After being awarded the 2021 4th quarter Hometown Hero this past December, last night Commander Thomas J. Visintainer Sr. was presented with an award for Hometown Hero of 2021. Congratulations Commander, well deserved!

Congratulations to the Winners of our Pearl Harbor / Paul Herrick Essay Contest

Contest Winners with American Legion Dept of WI Commander Greg Eirich and Post 21 Commander Thomas Visintainer

Congratulations to Elijah Bogar, Katelynn Ripper, and Joshua Cao, our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners respectively. We were proud to have these three outstanding youths read their winning entries at our Pearl Harbor / Paul Herrick Memorial Service. The prizes were $500.00, $300.00, and $200 for the three high school students.

The American Legion, Wisconsin State Commander, Greg Eirich who traveled from Sheboygan for the days events, presented the awards. The commander gave a well received talk on leadership and the Legions Four Pillars of Service.

On hand to congratulate the winners was State Representative Samantha Kerkman who talked with the winners and their families at length.

It could be argued that writing (communications) is the most important tool of a leader. The simple act of deciding to do so by entering this contest is a good indication that we are dealing with future leaders of business / and or our communities. Seeing future leaders conversing with these two current leaders was a very welcome site, and a highlight of the evening.

We want to note that there was only one entry from a middle school student. We did not distinguish between age or school groups in this, our first year of having this contest. In that light, an Honorable Mention goes to 6th Grader Ryleigh Konitzer for her well done entry.
