Since 2009, The American Legion’s Legiontown campaign has served as a platform for posts to share their stories of ways they are raising their community profile. Whether its fundraising events for Legion programs, welcome-home celebrations for returning troops or membership recruitment efforts, posts are encouraged to register at to share their stories, both during the Legiontown campaign and throughout the year.

The campaign runs now through the end of November, which is Membership Retention Month.

The Legion’s National Public Relations Division has available online resources that posts can download for free to assist with their campaigns: the Legiontown booklet and the Public Relations Toolkit. Events can be planned around National Disaster Preparedness Month, Halloween, Veterans Day and more.
