Latest Announcement On The Veterans Memorial!
April 28, 2015
The citizens of Greendale, Wisconsin came together this evening at the Greendale High School Auditorium for a massive meeting with the School Board on whether to transfer a piece of land owned by the School Board to the City of Greendale. The town's residents each had an opportunity to share their thoughts and views
on the subject before the Board. At the end of discussion, a motion was made for a ballot vote to be taken. Ballots were distributed and then collected. The crowd applauded and cheered as they heard the results read by the newly elected School Board President, Joe Crapitto. The vote to transfer the property passed, 377 to 54!

The vote was held because the veterans living in Greendale and the veterans who are active with The American Legion and VFW Posts in Greendale want to build a Veterans Memorial on the site after observing that the property had not been used for many, many years. The School Board denied the request based on the requested location of the Memorial.

As of right now, it is understood by those who are interested in the Veterans Memorial that the transfer of this property now means there is a new governing body in charge of making the decision. The veterans organizations remain hopeful and look forward to working with the City of Greendale.

HEADLINES
The Greendale American Legion Post 416, VFW Post 10519, The City of Greendale and Many Others Observe Memorial Day 2015
While many consider Memorial Day as just another three day weekend for traveling out of town, others know the true meaning of this ceremonial day. Memorial Day allows us to take time to honor those who died for our country and our freedom. Without their sacrifice, we most likely would not be allowed to travel across the street much less out of town.

Two Special Days Every Year

On Veterans Day we thank all veterans for serving our wonderful country. On Memorial Day we give honor and respect to all who have sacrificed their lives for us. These courageous people, who fought for our freedom, actually made their Supreme Sacrifice. They will never see their families again. There are thousands of families across America who know first-hand what this means. It is their loved one who is no longer with us. May we never forget this and may God bless each of them!
Forever
Please help us support Denise Rohan from Wisconsin to the high position of National Commander of The American Legion. Denise is the Past State Commander of the Department of Wisconsin and has carried out those responsibilities very successfully. She has recently been nominated candidate for National Commander. This is special not only because she is from Wisconsin, but because she will also be the first female National Commander in the history of The American Legion starting in 1919.

All National Commanders serve for a one year term, representing The American Legion before the U.S. Congress and the President of The United States on many veterans issues. This requires the individual to present themselves professionally and honorably. They must have the committed trust of the entire Legion membership as they travel worldwide as needed to help and represent all veterans. Feel free to make your financial donations by making your checks payable to Denise Rohan and mailing them to Denise Rohan for National Commander, PO Box 930100, Verona, WI 53593-0100. Thank you for your support. More to come.

QUESTION!
What is the Legacy Scholarship Fund?
ANSWER: The Legacy Scholarship Fund is a very special fund that was created by The American Legion Riders. These motorcycle riders get together by the hundreds and ride from town to town across the United States, raising money to help pay for the college education of children who lost a parent while protecting our freedom. Many children have grown up without the benefit of both parents for this reason, thus making life difficult for them in many ways. They should never have to worry about how to pay for their education too. Enough. The American Legion Riders are known for their philosophy that, "We take care of our own."

We thank The American Legion Riders for your help and service to these exceptional kids! May God bless you and may God bless America. For more information about the Riders and what they do, please go to: www.legion.org/riders
