American Legion wants you

To the editor:

For the first time in many years The American Legion Post 130 of Fort Dodge has had a year over year gain in membership. Membership in the Legion represents a commitment to help support the four pillars of the American Legion – mentoring youth, being an advocate for veterans, supporting a strong national defense and promoting Americanism.

The American Legion Family includes the American Legion Auxiliary, the American Legion Riders and the Sons of the American Legion all of which have active organizations in Fort Dodge.

We very much appreciate those who renew their membership each year as well as those veterans who have recently joined. Eligibility requirements for each organization are outlined online at If you have an interest in supporting the mission of the American Legion, please consider becoming a member.
