We Should Be Proud
September  2018

We should be proud of the service we have rendered our country, and the way we have continued serve our communities, our youth, our comrades and our nation.

We should be proud of our brothers and sisters who have died in the wars through the years so that freedom can live in America.

We should be road of this great nation and its history. We have survived despite our flaws, our weaknesses and our divisions. In the end, our national character and our great experimental democracy have lifted us to great heights a–beacon to the world.

We should be proud that our organizations has never shirked its primary duty of taking care of our fellow veterans. Vigilance, genius and hard work have resulted in the GI Bill of Rights, and accountable government veterans administration, and a system of veterans hospitals and care facilities that is unequaled in the world.

We should be proud that we remain a bastion of patriotism for our beloved nation. If we don’t demonstrate a constant loyalty to our land and heritage, who will?

We should be proud that our programs – Baseball, Oratorical, Law Enforcement, Boys State and Boys Nation – reach out to so many and make this a better country, both today and in the future.

We should be proud that we stand shoulder to shoulder with our comrades returning from war, able to offer them our mentorship, our experience and our respect and love.

We are The American Legion. For a century we have selflessly offered our service to the nation. We have made a difference. We are nation changers. We are ready for another century.

WE SHOULD BE PROUD
