The American Legion, Department of Maine is getting ready to celebrate 100 years of service to Veterans, families and our local communities. We will be conducting remembrances, commemorations, parades, open houses, and other special events all around the state. Events that support Veterans Rehabilitation, Americanism, Youth and National Security. A robust schedule of events is planned starting in March 2018 with a Birthday Kick-off, culminating on Veterans Day, 2019.
We welcome businesses and other Veteran friendly organizations to partner with us as event sponsors, volunteers and attendees and be a part of our celebration.
