Hello Legion Family! My name is Scott Gregory, Historian from Squadron 34 Tecumseh.

I have been involved in the construction industry for a good many years, and it took me a good many years to earn rewards such as discounts on material. I get to see a lot of southeastern Michigan in my travels and a lot of Posts, many in need of repair or at least some paint. I asked my representative from Sherwin-Williams paints, Jason Money how could I help. He suggested an account that would use my discount, and American Legion Family of Michigan cash account at Sherwin-Williams was formed. Best of all, you don’t have to wait 30 years to get the rewards!

This account is for all Legion, Auxiliary, Sons, and Legion Riders. Yes everybody in the State of Michigan can get 40%-50% off paints depending on product, and 15%-20% off any other supplies in the store! All you have to do is give them the name of the account; American Legion Family of Michigan this account # 7741-7074-0 and you’re saving!

Maybe this can help some posts with revitalization, maybe help a struggling veteran, it might help a new military family paint their first house…be creative and use this as you like legion family!


The Legion Act is here and We Want You!

With President Trump’s signature on the Legion Act, the extension of the ongoing declared period of war was extended back to Dec. 7, 1941. The congressionally approved act is a way to honor thousands of veterans who were killed or wounded on duty during periods not previously considered a time of war.

“Finally Congress has acknowledged the service and sacrifice of at least 1,600 veterans who died or were wounded in previously undeclared periods of war,” said American Legion National Judge Advocate Kevin Bartlett. “This new law honors the memories of those veterans while allowing other veterans from those previously undeclared eras to receive all the American Legion benefits they have earned through their service.”

The LEGION Act - Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act — also redefines The American Legion’s membership eligibility dates. The eligibility now span from Dec. 7, 1941, until a time when the U.S. is no longer at war, as determined by Congress.
