Those are the words coming from the Commander at Post #296 in Fort Wayne. As many of you know, Post #296 was submerged in water about 18 inches deep as a result of the flooding in early July. To provide some necessary monetary help that is so badly needed at this time, Voiture #37 of the 40&8 is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17 from 12noon to 5pm each day at 7301 Old Decatur Road. On these two days Voiture #37 will be serving HAMBURGERS AND FRENCH FRIES FOR $5.00. All net proceeds will go to Post #296 to help pay for the renovations. For more information contact: Voiture #37 at 447-6299.
THANK YOU! HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

AMERICAN LEGION EMBLEM
Question: Can you tell me anything about the meaning of the emblem of the American Legion?
Answer: The emblem was patterned after the “victory” buttons of WWI. Delegates to the National Convention in 1919 voted to make the design the permanent badge of the organization. Creation of the emblem is credited to Eric Fisher Wood, a legion founder.
The rays of the Sun symbolize justice, loyalty, freedom and democracy.
The outer bronze ring pledges loyalty and Americanism. The inner ring stands for Legion service.
The star is the Victory symbol of WWI, honor-glory-constancy via, U.S.
The wreath forms the center and pays tribute to those who gave their lives for their country. Our comrades.
The two gold rings symbolize two Legion objectives: care for the sick and disabled veterans: wholesome development of our children/youth.
The words, “American Legion” tie the emblem together in truth, rememberance, honor, service, rehabilitation, child welfare, loyalty and Americanism.
