AMERICANISM IS AN unfailing love of country; loyalty to its institutions and ideals; eagerness to defend it against all enemies; undivided allegiance to the flag; and a desire to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and posterity.

This definition of “Americanism” was promulgated by the Commanders in Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, United Spanish War Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, the National Commanders of the American Legion, and the Disabled American Veterans of the World War at a conference held in Washington, in February 1927.

Membership Applications are available in the post, if you need any assistance in getting the DD214, we can assist in helping you fill out and apply for those veterans documents.
