During the April meeting, Adjutant Seydel was instructed to advise the Legion headquarters that the Matson Rames Post #152 is in favor of taking all veterans of the present World War (WWII) into the American Legion.  During the year 1942, the American Legion (as well as the Veterans of Foreign Wars) decided to become perpetual organizations, rather than die off like the Grand Army of the Republic (Civil War Era veterans) was rapidly doing.  It was during this decision that the charter was adapted to accept World War II veterans, along with the existing World War I veterans.
