Gilbert’s American Legion

As veterans day approaches the country begins to once again honor our veterans.  In Gilbert we celebrate Veterans day Nov 10, so we can avoid conflicting with other veterans day events. Throughout history our country, we have praised our warriors in time of conflict and forgot them when the guns are silent. 

I am very proud to be a member of Gilbert’s American Legion Post 39, where veterans are honored every day.  What many people don’t realize is that to become a member of the American Legion you not only have to have served in the United States Military, you must have served during war time. 

When you see the old guys with the garrison caps with all the pins on them, don’t forget to thank them.  They traded their “todays” for your tomorrow.  If you are a veteran, come on down to the post on Gilbert Road, and we’ll sign you up.  Together we have kept our country free for 233 years.
