When we wore the uniforms of our country, and for those that still do, we did not wear our uniforms to political events. We did not endorse a candidate or party with our name, rank and branch of service. The United States military was and is, apolitical.
The American Legion adopted this policy when it was founded. The Legion cannot be effective if we appear as a political organization, we must be apolitical. If you use social media to share your political views, please remove any Legion related apparel, etc., from your profile picture.
We served to protect the right to vote. Volunteer for your candidate, consider becoming a poll worker, use social media express your views, be involved in the political process. When this election is over, remember we are all Americans. One Nation Indivisible.
VOTE, and encourage others to do the same.
For God and Country,
Larry Lewens, Past Commander, Post 21
