Resolution No.                                                 6

Subject             Amend Consolidated Post Report (CPR) to Include Support our Troops
                    Programs

                                Referred to Convention Resolutions Committee


Whereas; The CPR was established in 1975 in order to assist departments in the
documentation of the various activities a specific post has done during the twelve-month
reporting period June 1 through May 31; and

Whereas, All Posts should complete these forms annually; and

Whereas, Many Posts have Support Our Troops Programs that include, but are not
limited to, paying dues of active duty and disabled veterans, mailing care packages to
troops stationed stateside and in combat areas, paying for postage, purchasing and
acquiring contents for those packages, aiding the families of deployed troops, donating
to hospitality rooms in airports, interactions with Blue Star Families, departure and
welcome home events; and

Whereas; These programs offer comfort and peace of mind to our troops, as well as a
way of communicating to them that their work and sacrifice is appreciated by The
American Legion at home; and

Whereas, many of these programs require significant amounts of money and volunteer
hours which indicate the whole-hearted support of Legionnaires around the United
States; and

Whereas, This program can help fulfill the promise of at least 3 of 4 Pillars of The
American Legion including Americanism, Children and Youth, and Rehabilitation; and
