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
- 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

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 Administration

ELK GROVE FILLED WITH BLUE RIBBONS AS TOWN PREPARES FOR
TARA O'SULLIVAN'S FUNERAL PROCESSION
By Jaimie Ding
SACRAMENTO BEE: JUNE 26, 2019 05:17 PM, UPDATED JUNE 26, 2019 07:21 PM
Larry Sahota, a Commander in the American Legion, said that the U.S. flag code
does not allow other flags to be be flown by themselves and had to be under the
American flag if flown together.
Sahota decided to organize a group of people to try to fly “thin blue line” flags
beneath all 50 of the American flags that he counted between Highway 99 and
Herberger funeral home.
“It’s all about (O’Sullivan),” Sahota said. “It’s about her and respecting her.”
A THANK YOU EMAIL FROM ELK GROVE CHIEF OF POLICE
Thank you, Larry. Your willingness to step up and assist with the flags was much
appreciated. Thanks for your support and for always being there for our community.
