GEORGIA'S AMERICAN LEGION CYBER POST
LARRY A. HOFF ePOST2100

Commander Ed McMillan welcomes you to Georgia's first and only cyber American Legion Post.

It is our goal to serve veterans.  It is not our goal to take anyone away from their local post, but if you are not active in your local post or unable to get out at night, then we want you to consider being a member of our Cyberpost.  If there is any way we can assist you, please contact us we will try our best to help.

We offer veterans an option to attendance at traditional brick-and-mortar posts by providing communication and information via our monthly Internet meetings, monthly newsletters, Help Desk, and this Web presence.

Our Veterans Assistance Center provides links to a variety of resources.

The American Legion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Legion Family Members and Friends,

Across this great nation of ours, American Legion Family members will pause to honor our comrades on this upcoming sacred weekend.

Legionnaires and Sons of The American Legion members will place flags on veterans’ gravesites. The Legion Family will wear poppies and collect donations to support veterans programs. American Legion posts will lead Memorial Day commemorations in their communities.

But what if The American Legion ceased to exist? It’s not a scenario that I personally want to ever see. Who would advocate for veterans on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures? Who would instill the values of citizenship and patriotism to children and youth? Who would provide for military families in need? Who would award college scholarships to children of deceased or severely disabled post-9/11 veterans? Who would educate Americans about protecting Old Glory? Who would volunteer for nearly a million hours at VA hospitals each year? Who would train service officers to help countless veterans access their benefits at no cost? Simply put, no other nonprofit organization has the reach, dedication or influence that The American Legion does. But that won’t last forever, if our membership continues to erode.

Our members make a significant difference every day in every community across America.

Take for example, Post 554 in Morley, Mich. Post members immediately leapt into action when they learned that the home where paralyzed veteran Justin Flowers was living needed a new ramp.

“I am just so floored by how they did this,” said Flowers, who served in the Army from 1992-94. “One guy told the (local) news crew he was going to stay … until he got the deck done. For The American Legion to come out and help these people – they were doing this for me.”

Or consider the impact that American Legion Post 140 is having in Prescott Valley, Ariz.

The post, now in its fifth year, worked with New Horizons Disability Empowerment Campus on a 16-month project to provide the community a 9,400-square-foot facility where disabled people, including veterans, could find the services they need. “It’s a win for the Legion,” said Dave Seigler, New Horizons executive director. “It’s a win for us. But best of all, it’s a win for the clients we serve.”

Those are just two of the many examples of why The American Legion matters. We’ll see many more throughout Memorial Day Weekend.

As we pause this weekend to honor and remember our fallen comrades, take time to engage potential and/or expired members. Educate them on the value of being a Legionnaire. Let them know that The American Legion is a perfect way for them to continue their service. And most importantly, sign them up to join The American Legion, the nation’s most influential veterans service organization.

The American Legion — and the communities we serve — succeed because of your commitment, your dedication to veterans, servicemembers and their families. It’s up to us to continue what our predecessors started nearly a century ago.



Carry the legacy forward.

National Commander
