American Legion Posts to Help Communities
Military veterans in and around the Southern Districts of Belknap, Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Rockingham, Strafford and Sullivan Counties are invited for a special service session at Merrimack Post 92 located at 43 Baboosick Lake Rd., Merrimack, NH 03054. State teams along with local post members from The American Legion will be in town to discuss veterans’ benefits and service and kick off this community and veteran service campaign within the community.
All wartime veterans in these areas are invited to join us at Merrimack Post 92 to learn more about The American Legion and veteran benefits. Membership and veteran information staff will be available March 9th & 10th 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. An American Legion service officer will be available during the event to assist all area veterans with claims or other veteran benefit related questions during these times.
In keeping with the 100-year tradition of The American Legion, the rejuvenated American Legion posts in the areas will focus on community service and assistance to veterans. The scope and nature of the posts’ community service will be determined by its members and inputs from local civic and community officials.
Since its inception in 1919, The American Legion has been a key advocate for veterans’ benefits, patriotic American values, instilling values in young people through numerous programs and a strong national defense with focus on quality-of-life issues for those serving in today’s armed forces.
