GET THOSE RESERVATIONS NOW

(Disregard date on the flyer to the left; just a visual example)

Members of The American Legion, Sons of The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, and their guests are all invited to The American Legion’s 105th National Convention to help strengthen and support the world’s largest veteran’s association! You do NOT have to be a delegate to attend! Learn from each other’s creative solutions for successes and challenges like those of your own department. Don’t miss out! Contact your Department Headquarters or Adjutant now to register and to reserve a hotel room! His name is Angel Juarez, phone # 602-264-7706, and his email is ajuarez@azlegion.org. For more information, go to www.legion.org/convention/resources.

 

This year’s 2024 membership card, Be the One, reminds us that the Number 1 issue facing the veteran community is suicide. It is estimated that between 17 and 22 veterans or servicemembers take their lives each day. That’s more than 6,000 annually. The rate of suicide for veterans is more than 50% higher than that of non-veteran adults.    

At its core, The American Legion is activating a national platform to reduce the rate of veteran suicide. The Be the One campaign will destigmatize asking for mental health support, creating opportunity for those with mental health issues to speak freely and get the support they need. How can you help? While this program is designed to help all veterans, we know that everyone responds differently to stresses, have different life experiences, and have varying results in types of treatment. However, the following are guidelines intended to provide help before a crisis situation develops. The American Legion encourages you to Be the One to talk with others about how you are feeling, ask for help when you know you need it, know there are millions of people ready to help you and remember your family and friends’ care.

You can renew ONLINE by going to  www.legion.org/renew  and click “Renew Now” to safely and conveniently pay your  dues. There is also a new 3-year option (for 2025-2026-2027) @ $50 per year ($150). Please note that you won't get one card that has all three years on it. You are just pre-paying and will get the card as that year is released to the Post from National.

Don't be Fooled by FAKE Stories and Pictures

There have been a few fake stories/pictures lately. One (pictured above) was about a fake attack on the Pentagon. It spread so quickly that it briefly affected the Stock Market (and your retirement funds).

Then, there was a fake story floating around about American Legion Post 53 in Buckeye. The story was that there was a theft of copper from their air conditioning systems and that a collection was being taken up to get them money to replace the copper - too bad it wasn't really true.  

There is a willingness of people (a.k.a., paid influencers), rogue nations (N. Korea, Iran, Russia & China) and other people who just spread rumors without verifying them first; disseminating obviously fake AI (Artificial Intelligence) generated pictures and video's because they want to keep us pitted against each other (like members of Congress). They are counting on you not to verify it for yourself and just take "someone's" word for it. Ultimately, they are hoping that our own division will divide us (or U.S.) and lead to an Uncivil War in our country.

And it will get worse before it gets better - Candidates, paid influencers and foreign agents will use this technology to sway voters with high-quality deep fakes that seem very real, especially in the days leading up to the 2024 Presidential elections. This can also include bogus deep-fake telephone calls like the 5,000 to 25,000 phony calls in New Hampshire purporting to be from President Biden on January of this year.

DO NOT spread a story if you are not sure about the story (or source) - ask a trusted family member, friend, neighbor...or even your friendly neighborhood Adjutant. There's an old quote that goes something like this: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

DID YOU KNOW? If you buy the winning Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot ticket at Post 62, as an incentive, the Post gets a certain percentage as a reward for selling that ticket. For example, the latest Powerball of over $1.75 billion that someone won in CA? The store that sold that ticket got $1 million - something to think about!
