I know that no one is getting any younger. What happens when an aging group such as the members of the Ameri- can Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Vietnam Veterans of Amer- ica aren't being succeeded by the younger veterans? Those organizations go away. They disappear. That is what happens. I was able to attend the North Dakota American Legion District 2 fall meeting in Park River, Thursday, September 14, and they spoke of their many programs and updated the district in local post happenings and the like. They also addressed the looming reality that the members present in the room, ranging from local post to national office, aren't getting any younger. Why are these Veterans Service Organizations so important? Why should I belong to them? These are some of the questions that float through young veterans minds. My take on the situation is circular: mem- bership brings in money, money goes fi'om the local level to higher lev- els, and these levels provide programs back to local members and their families. In addition to this simplified explanation, funding also provides for representation at the legislative level, making sure that military vet- erans are always in the hearts and minds of the Unites States Congress. There is really too much to mention about what these organizations do provide. The American Legion was chartered in 1919 as a patriotic veterans or- ganization. The American Legion is one of the largest military organiza- tions, but, like many others, is seeing a continuous drop in membership, mostly due to older members passing away and not enough new members to replace them. The American Legion will be celebrating its 100th con- vention next summer and centennial next year and they hope to rebound their numbers. For more information regarding Veterans Service Organizations, please visit their web sites or get a hold of your local groups to get in- volved. Some of the groups in our area:,,,, and Ask questions. Get to know the members. Most have been with their posts for over 40 years.
