The Ravenna Michigan American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces for many decades. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. We want to especially welcome and invite veterans and their families that have served in recent years. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below. To see if you are eligible to join the post, please go to our membership info page. If you want to join the auxiliary or SAL, please go to those pages here on the website for more information. You may contact the adjutant or secretary for them as well.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Memorial Day parade and gathering after the parade at the Legion Hall this year have been canceled. The Sherman-Moore American Legion post will still conduct the Wreath Laying at the bridge and the 21- gun salutes and taps at the cemeteries on Monday, Memorial Day.
