Why We Do It
As Legionnaires, we believe in America and the principles that make her the greatest nation on earth. When each of us entered the service (as soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen and guardsmen), we all took the following oath:
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
This oath has no expiration date; and it is this common oath that binds us together as comrades.
“What We Do” is done so we have the means to support the various programs and activities that help America stay strong. It takes work, time and dedication to do what we do, but those who help get a genuine feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction in doing something for their community, state and nation.
The second reason for what we do is called comradeship. When we help someone in need, and do it as a group, we become part of something bigger than ourselves. Our Post has a great group of members, that work hand-in-hand with the Auxiliary, the SAL and the ALR. When they put on a program, you’ll see Legionnaires working alongside of them. When the Post needs help, the Auxiliary and SAL are also there. You become more than friends, you become part of the Legion family…and that is a great feeling!
Victory Post 70 is located on 1125 Miller Street, just off State Road 44.
