Our National Commander is right — Congress and the Department of Veterans
Affairs depend on The American Legion. That's because:

  • We are the voice of the veteran.•We are the conscience of a nation that honors
    military service and patriotic values.

  • Without us, government would not know how to effectively fulfill its mission to
    support and honor our nation's veterans, members of the Armed Forces, and
    families and communities across this land.

That is why it's important for you to renew your membership for our Post through
2018 now.




SAVE A LIFE!  AMERICAN LEGION POST 233 BLOOD DRIVE











As a participant in The American Legion Blood Donor Program, Post 233 has an
ongoing Center Drive set up through BloodSource. Post 233 and American Legion
Family members,families, and friends who are able to give blood are encouraged to
participate throughout the year.


Donating blood is safe, easy, and takes about an hour. Further information
regarding donor eligibility requirements, BloodSource Donor Center locations, and
scheduling appointments is found at www.bloodsource.org.

We will work together to give back to the community in a truly life changing way.
Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives
of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people
in our community and across the country.

Please consider making a donation TODAY. The local Donor Center is located at
9267 Laguna Springs Drive, Suite 100, Elk Grove; however, blood donations
towards Post 233’s Center Drive may be given at any BloodSource Donor Center.
Prior to your donation, it is important to inform BloodSource personnel to credit the
blood donation towards the American Legion Post 233 (Elk Grove): Group No. 0352.

With your help, we can have a lifesaving impact in our community.

If you have questions, please contact Maryanna Ricker, Chair Blood Drive
Committee.




SACRED TRUST: NATIONAL CEMETERY










Burial in a VA national cemetery is open to all members of the armed forces and
Veterans who have met minimum active duty service requirements, as applicable,
and were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.  Members of the
reserve components of the armed forces who die while on active duty or who die
while on training duty under certain circumstances are also eligible for burial, as are
service members who were eligible for retired pay at the time of their death.

A veteran's spouse, widow or widower, minor children, and, under certain
conditions, unmarried adult children with disabilities, may also be eligible for burial.  
Eligible spouses and children may be buried even if they predecease the Veteran.

View the videos below for some basic information on your burial benefits at a
National Cemetery.
