March Meeting Cancelled

Please put the word out to people you know that are not internet active. 

Please keep in mind that the officer biennial elections (every two years) are coming up. Start thinking about nominations. Also start thinking about what the American Legion can do to help in this crisis.

We may have to do a lot of things a little differently (i.e. via social media) but we are veterans, we Adapt, Improvise, Overcome.

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to our new website. We hope it is useful to our members, all veterans, and the public. Just as a Navy ship coming out of dry dock still needs a lot of work before she’s ready for action, so does this site. All hands are necessary to make sure we are battle ready. So secure the needle guns and paint brushes, ready the special sea and anchor detail, and giver her a good shakedown. Please take a good look and give us your comments and suggestions in the comments section, email, or even wrap a piece of paper around a spanner wrench and throw it at us. It’s time to bring our Preamble to the Constitution to life.

Underway, shift colors!

TLS Veterans Presentation

At the December Member Meeting last night, Ray Andersen, A retired U.S. Marine, gave a presentation about the TLS Veterans. I think it is fair to say that we were all pretty impressed at the scope of their organization. For myself, I am still bewildered at how much time and effort gets put into these programs. It’s truly awesome.

TLS Veterans is a Chicagoland veterans organization, but their reach extends into Kenosha County. If you know of a veteran that needs help, you would be doing them a great service to get them into contact with these folks!

If you have questions for Ray, he can be reached at (815) 679-6667 or randresen@tlsveterans.org

Their website is www.tlsveterans.org

Financial Scam Presentation

I attended an Elderly Financial Scam class put on by the Twin Lakes Police Department today at 1430. Capt Hall and Officer Ebert gave the class. It was very informative and I didn’t realize how many of our elderly were affected by this. The elderly person does not have to be family. It could be someone who is a Veteran or civilian.

I am trying to find out who the P.O.C. for Kenosha PD and Kenosha Co Sheriff’s Office is so we can get this information to our elderly. If you have information, let us know so we can post it. Maybe we can get a class here in town.

If the named Departments have problems getting a case put together, there is a retired Kenosha PD Det who works for the County of Kenosha Department of Human Services. Her name is Diane Walton, Financial Abuse Investigator. Her number is (262)-605-6619. The calls made to her are confidential and she can get information easier than the Police can because she is not required to have a warrant.

So if you see, hear, or suspect that an elderly person is being financially scammed, get ahold of KPD or Diane. She is more than happy to take your call.

Consider attending one of these classes out in the County or otherwise if you hear about. Bring your elderly friends and relatives. They are free.
