Hopkins County American Legion Post 66 welcomed it’s 100th member during the American Legion’s 100th year celebration. William R. Cassy Jr. is also currently elected as the post JAG as well as post trustee.

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion’s membership grew to over 1 million, with local posts springing up across the country.

Today, membership in American Legion stands at nearly 2 million in more than 13,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines, according to the American Legion website.

The wartime veterans service organization mentors youth, sponsors wholesome programs in communities, advocates for patriotism and honor, promote strong national security, and continued devotion to fellow service members and veterans, according to www.legion.org.
