Subject:    Reports

This is the time of the year to recognize your Posts and our members. 

This is what we do every year at this time, it should be no surprise to anyone.

So Act Legion and get these reports turned in. 


I know each Post did something but we don’t know it if you don’t turn in a Consolidated Post Report (CPR).  You can do the report on line or the form is on the Department web page.  If you submitted the form electronically, be sure to make a copy and mail to your District and Department.. 


Thank you for your dedication service and for all that you do and will continue to do for the American Legion.  


God and Country
