Since the receipt of our charter on May 23, 1934, our American Legion Post has been welcoming eligible veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces. Community Post 375 was organized at an enthusiastic meeting of local World War veterans in early 1934. It started out with a membership of 26, with William Rupert as the unanimous choice for commander. Today, we continue to welcome all eligible military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, your Country, your Community and your fellow veterans. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble.
A Women's Auxiliary of the American Legion was formed in 1919. Our Legion Post has every reason to be proud of it's Auxiliary. Our Auxiliary members are always anxious and willing to co-operate in every Legion activity.
A Sons of the Legion was formed in 1932. The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion. The Legion has every reason to be proud of it's Sons of Legion unit, which gained statewide recognition because of it's programs of service.
Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All three organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation's children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.
MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events throughout the Mukwonago community, the goal of every Veteran to it's last man is to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead of all of the wars of the country; and all graves are decorated on this National Holiday.
ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War I. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all Veterans. Annually the Post sponsored the Armistice Day Parade. An important tradition was established when the Post led in the memorial exercises at 11 o'clock on the morning of November 11, marking the exact hour of the cessation of hostility on the war fronts.
