Toward the end of each month, The American Legion sends out the Centennial Celebration e-newsletter to an audience of over 610,000 subscribers. Each edition includes stories on events, initiatives and individual stories of how posts, departments and the national organization are preparing for the kickoff of the 15-month observance of the Legion’s 100th anniversary, each in their own way.

The e-newsletter also includes links to resources like the 100th Anniversary Media Toolkit, available to download from the Legion’s dedicated centennial site at www.legion.org/centennial.

Dave Rehbein, past national commander and chairman of the national 100th Anniversary Observance Committee, comments, "The Centennial Celebration e-newsletter is an excellent resource for staying up-to-date on the latest news and events as The American Legion - at every level - heads into its second century of service." The celebration kicks off in August at the 100th National Convention in Minneapolis – make sure you’re on top of it. Go to www.legion.org/newsletters to subscribe.
