Legion Praised Rv
Local Service Man
*'A comradeship of men who have
memories of squads right. sub
marine infected seas, and trenches
of Prance, are enjoyments of men
who belong to The American
Leglcn,” said Dr. T. B. Gold, M D.,
D. S. C. member of the Warren
Hoyle, Post No. 82 today.
"By paying dues and taking part
in the Legion, a veteran engages
in greai national projects of serv
ice. The Leg.on works for relief of
disabled comrades, their depart
ments, aj.d orphaned children of
veterans. The Legion, through a
great network of ten thousand posts,
is engaged in tpe promotion of na
tional defense, aviation a safety
campaign, a junior baseball world
series, emergency relief, community
service, and scores of worthwhile
jrojects The Legion stands in the
front line tuner of every field
where the interest of World war
veterans Is at stake.
“The Legionnaire receives free
upon payment of his dues to the
organization The American Legion
Monthly. This magazine, produs.
of one of the largest publishing
plants in the- world, is well illu
strated. It commands the writings
of leading authors. It is one of the
most quoted magazines in the coun

every man who shares the common
memories of World war service.
'•Membership in the Legion in
most communities, entitle the vet
eran to club privileges as most posts
own then homes. Whenever a vet

and foreign countries, he finds fel

a l.egion membership card.
“The Legion is democratic. Its
meetings afford a forum for sell
expression In the Legion there is
no rank. Millionaires associate with
men of the moderate circumstances,
memories of World war days.
"Legion Posts enjoy assistance
and companionship of the Ameri
can Legicn Auxiliary, consisting of
approximately three hundred thou
sand patriotic women. Legion mem
bership carries the privilege of
joining the Forty and Eight, the

“There are deeper benefits de
rived from membership in the
Legicn. The veteran soon falls
into the swing of things. He soon
catches the spirit. He begins to
ask ‘What can I do to help?' The
men of the Legicn serve in peace
as they did In war."
