                What can you do?               What can you do to show what Americanism means to you?

                Be knowledgeable on flag etiquette, history and the proper disposal methods; as well as promoting and observing patriotic holidays.

                You can also help in promoting our Auxiliary programs; sending students to Girls State and Junior camp as well as the Quilts of Valor project. And dont forget about our Legion programs- Boys State, the Oratorical contest, flag essay contest, Legion baseball and junior shooting sports.

                You can encourage flag displays; whether it be in the classroom, at home or your local businesses. Assist at Legion family patriotic events such as the Honor Flights.

                There are so many ways to support Americanism, for more ideas go to the Legion website at www.legion.org, or the national Auxiliary website at www.alaforveterans.org to download forms and contest rules. Or check out www.legion.org/legislative to see what is happening with the U.S. flag bill.

Check the national website for contest and reporting deadlines. The mid year report needs to be turned in to me by December 15th, 2019 and the year end report needs to be turned into me by April 30th, 2020 so that I can report to the Central Division chairman  about all the great things the Department of Iowa is doing to show patriotism and respect for our American flag.

                There are so many small things we can do to show our patriotism as well; wear auxiliary clothes, flag pins or anything bearing our Auxiliary symbol.
