AMERICAN LEGION POST 136

 

American Legion Emblem


"There shines the Emblem of The American Legion, it is your badge of  distinction, honor and service. It stands for God and Country, and the highest  rights of man. Of its several parts, each has a meaning."

Elements of the Emblem

The rays of the sun
The rays of the sun form the background of our proud emblem and suggests the Legion's principles will dispel the darkness of violence and evil.



The wreath
The wreath forms the center, in loving memory of those brave comrades who  gave their lives in the service of the United States that liberty might endure.



The star
The star, victory symbol of World War I, also symbolizes honor, glory and constancy. The letters "U.S." leave no doubt as to the brightest star in the Legion's star.



Outer rings
The larger of two outer rings stands for the rehabilitation of our sick and  disabled comrades. The smaller inside ring denotes the welfare of America's children.



Inner rings
The smaller of two inner rings set upon the star represents service to our communities, states and the nation. The larger outer ring pledges loyalty to Americanism.



American Legion
The words American Legion tie the whole together for truth, remembrance, constancy, honor, service, veterans affairs and rehabilitation, children and youth, loyalty, and Americanism.

 

The American Legion was founded in 1919 on the four pillars of a Strong national security, Veteran’s affairs, Americanism and Youth programs. Legionnaires work for the betterment of their communities.
