Dear American Legion Family,
With the cancellation of most major sporting events and television shows on a production hiatus, people may be running out of viewing ideas. Sgt. 1st Class Brian Eldridge of the The United States Army Field Band recently sent an email to national headquarters promoting his unit’s virtual concert series.
So if you want to view a combination of talent and patriotism, watch their streamed performances on YouTube.com/ArmyFieldBand. You can also visit the U.S. Army Field Band website (https://www.armyfieldband.com/) for a complete schedule. Happy viewing.

R.I.P.
The American Legion Post 24 continues to lead with supporting youth programs, VSO programs of support, providing a healthy Post environment of nonsmoking and keeping to traditions of all we stand for. We are much more than a watering hole. Many others in Sarasota and Manatee County see what I see. I have joined the American Legion Post 325 in Ellenton which will soon become the 2nd American Legion of Manatee County to go nonsmoking proving that a Veteran's health matters. I will ask Post 325 leadership to also do what we say and make us about all of our Veterans, their families and the total community. I'm proud to be a Legionnaire.

I am a student at the University of South Florida and would like to do an oral History project by interviewing a Vietnam Veteran, buying them a meal and refreshments.
There is this story and much more in the latest national American Legion newsletter. The AL has recently broadened its membership pool. I invite you to join a post convenient to you but am partial to my American Legion Post 24 in Bradenton, Florida.
