BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – To all military veterans of all service branches, we want you to become a member of your local American Legion Post. We welcome you with outstretched arms to become a Legionnaire and join the Pierce Lawton American Legion in Bellows Falls.
We finally have good news for military veterans who were previously not eligible to join the American Legion due to their dates of service. The U.S. Congress has passed legislation and President Trump has signed into law the new eligibility dates for membership. The new dates, along with your Honorable Discharge, are from the year 1941 to the present.
Today, the Legion family is celebrating 100 years of service to fellow veterans and to our community in all 50 states. Come and be a part of it with membership for yourself, your spouse, and dependents. Become a Legionnaire, Ladies Auxiliary member, or a Son of the American Legion. Visit Post 37 at 42 Rockingham St., and fill out an application. We are looking forward to meeting you.
