Volunteers are the life blood of any American Legion. We know that we have fabulous volunteers at Post 129 and we want to hear about what you do out in the community and here at the Post. 

One of the things we are asked every year to report on to the Department and National is the amount of hours our Post members volunteer. Unfortunately we know that many of you do not turn in your volunteer hours. We have started a page on our website to try to make it easier. Any time you volunteer come to our website fill out the form and hit submit. The entry will be submitted to your organization. ​

Direct link to the page can be found below.
