We have had a couple members getting Facebook posts stating that they need to pay past Legion dues, please don't click on these post as they are a scam. I contacted the State membership coordinator and this is what she said about this(see below)
The only way National sends out renewals is thru the mail or email. They do not use facebook. The Department never sends out renewals they come form National. SO this did not come from The Department or National.
Firing Squad Commander Steve Gillis is in need of new members for the Squad, in the past few months they have had some members retire for varies reason and could use a few new members.
If you are interested please contact Steve at: firstname.lastname@example.org or if you know a Squad member talk to them about signing up.
Here are some phone numbers for the VA that can be very helpful, you do need to be registered in the VA medical system.
For all issues: 1-800-827-1000, 1-888-901-6609
