He will explain Why all ex-service men shoultl keep DUES Paid. He will personally get 10 or more New Members for his Post. OTHERWOKDS—A GO-GETTER is an KX-SEKVICE MAN and an American Citizen willing TO DO HIS'PART IN THE COMMUNITY HE LIVES IN. COMMANDER'S MESSAGE I realize the responsibilities connected with the position of Department Commander of the American Legion. I "want each member of the Legion to realize that he too has a share in these same responsibilities. It goes without saying that to be elected to tliis highly important position is a great honor, which any man deeply appreciates. We are all members of a great team. We arc fortunate in having a large number of ball carriers. The Department Commander is just the signal caller. In this case, we can't be satisfied by crossing the goal once. Our program is broad and varied. These programs must be carried to a successful conclusion, if the "merican Legion is to continue to be the watchdog of the veterans in Ar'-'iv^sas and America. One of these is membersnip. In membership lies the Legion's strength. When we go to the halls of Congress, or to the' Veterans Administration or anywhere else in behalf of, veterans, we represent what the Legion believes is the interest of all veterans and all citizens of the United States. . , i,-.., The greater the number of members behind our requests, the more certain we are of accomplishing our mission. •?•< i •?'• We have too much to do to string out our membership carrfpalgn all through the year. Lei-., get it behind us early. Firs.t,. every veteran who is interested In other veterans should sign up'at the first opportunity. Next, all former members should be .asked,to, »l«nf, up again. Then every veteran in the community who are eligible for the Legion should be invited to lend his assistance and support to the world's largest and strongest veterans organization. Leonard W. Moody, Department Commander. FLASH— IMPORTANT With the passage of Public Law 589, 79th Congress, your National Service Life Insurance is far more hexible and valuable than heretofore. Many new liberalizing features are now available. The American Legion urges all World War II veterans to retain their National Service Life Insurance contracts. Keep it in force and convert to a permanent policy when convenient. If you have permitted your insurance to lapse by all means rev instate all or as much as you possibly can under the new re-instate- nent provisions. Consult your American Legion Post Service Of- icer or the nearest office of the Veterans Administration. Your Insurance is Valuable — Keep It In Force!
