The American Legion: "Why I Belong"
THE TOPIC OF TELEVISING SPORTS THAT SANCTION KNEELING OR DISRESPECT THE U.S. FLAG/NATIONAL ANTHEM IN THE POST 459 CLUB ROOM HAS BEEN A MATTER OF CONTENTION FOR SOME OF OUR MEMBERS
- Earlier this year the Legionnaires made a decision to NOT show sports on club room televisions that sanction kneeling or disrespect the U.S. flag/National Anthem. That decision has generated quite a bit of discussion amongst the Post 459 Legion Family.
- At their last meeting, the Legionnaires decided to refer the question of whether or not we show such sporting events to a vote from all members of the Post 459 Legion Family (that means all current dues-paid Legion, Auxiliary, and SAL 459 members).
Therefore this is notification that:
- There will be a voter referendum on the topic of showing sporting events that permit and/or allow US flag/National Anthem disrespect. That vote will take place post-COVID-19 health concerns, on a date in the future to be announced.
- Further information will be announced as it becomes available, so please feel free to check back to this webpage.
