Prior to the start of any official Post meeting, our tradition is to encourage veterans to address any issue. During the official Post meetings, partisan party politics are not encouraged in keeping with American Legion HQ guidance. The American Legion stands for American patriotism - without partisan party rancor at official meetings. Identification as a veteran is expected.
In Virginia, we have elections annually and every Legionnaire is encouraged to vote.
