Military Items on Display
at Associated Bank

In partnership with Associated Bank, George Washington Bay View Post 180 has again prepared an exhibit of US military uniforms, flags, unit patches and various military related items. The exhibit is a tribute to current and past members of the US Uniformed Services and items will be on display for the month of November 2019 at the Associated Bank Branch located at 3719 S Kinnickinnic Ave, St Francis, WI.

This is the 4th year for this exhibit and Post 180 is always looking for additional items to display that would be of interest to the general public. If you have a service dress uniform tunic or cover, ribbons or medals, military flags, unit patches, or other items that you could place on loan to Post 180, please contact Greg Roth or Bob Schlemm. Please, no weapons or ordnance items as the exhibit is in a bank. Items on loan will be returned to the lending party and the end of November.

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. 
 

In contrast to other veterans organizations, the Legion offers a number of local programs and activities to strengthen its commitment to our nation’s grass roots and the people we serve.

American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs; it continues to educate youths on the importance of sportsmanship and develops the quality of our country’s citizenship.

The Heroes to Hometowns program is the only nationwide reintegration assistance service for wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Additionally, millions of dollars in donations have been given to fellow veterans and their families in times of grief, and various scholarship opportunities ensure the future success of our youth.

The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvements in the legislation process. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to their community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands not behind politics, but the issues and people that institute progress by focusing on veterans rights and quality of life.

The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
