GI Josh Needs Your Help!

Here in Wisconsin, the Sons of The American Legion has led the effort to give GI Josh Dogs to Wisconsin kids who have a parent deploying far from home.  Through Spring of 2017 we have given away more than 800 GI Josh Dogs at a cost of more than $20,000.  Unfortunately, there are still more deployments occurring, which means we need to continue to raise funds to support this impactful program.  Please consider a donation by downloading our Donation Form and indicating the funds for GI Josh Dog.  Learn more at www.wisal.org/josh-dogs/.

2018 S.A.L. Card Distribution and New Format

2018 Membership cards will be packaged with your Post’s membership cards and distributed at the Annual King Day Pilgrimage on June 18th.

There is a new format for 2018.  The card form is longer, and easier to make changes to member information.  More info here.


2017 Detachment Convention

This year’s Detachment Convention is July 14-16 in Appleton.  If you can’t make it the whole weekend, come for a day or a part of a day. 

Elections and Awards are on Saturday June 15th.  For information see www.wisal.org/convention.


Golf Outings - with or without golfing

Like to golf and want to support The American Legion Family?  Even if you don't golf, you can still support these by sponsoring a hole.  There are two outings coming up to consider:

Support Denise Rohan for National Commander of The American Legion on Saturday, June 24th in Reedsburg.  Forms here.

State American Legion Family Golf Tournament on Saturday Sept. 9th in Seymour.  Forms here.


Ride with the Riders – Rev’s Run and Walleye Weekend

Got a bike and want to ride and support The American Legion Family?  You can participate in the Rev’s Run on June 9-11.  This year it also combines with the Hearts to Heroes run at Walleye Weekend in Fond du Lac on June 10th.

Memorial Day – Lest We Forget

Please be sure to take a few minutes out of your life to honor someone who gave their life - for you. A quote seen on many memorial gravesites is:

“When you go home, tell them of us and say, For your tomorrow, we gave our today"
