2019 will be a landmark year for the American Legion.
Commander Josh Theilen explains 2019 will be the 100th anniversary of the Clinton American Legion and feels it's not only a celebration of 100 years but a kick-off to their next 100 years.
Theilen feels the Legion being in existence for 100 years is not only a showing of longevity for them but also the community continuing to support them. He believes they are not going anywhere.
The Legion at a national level helped establish the original GI bill and the Veterans Affairs organization.
2019 will be a year to focus on celebration but Theilen also wants to continue his goal of bringing in younger veterans and keeping them engaged and involved. We'll hear more from him next week on Regional Radio News on this and more.
