6th District Midwinter Report – Feb. 20, 2021


Websites.  The Department of Minnesota website www.mnlegion.org has a refreshed look.  Membership reports are available and are being updated a lot faster than in the past.  It is getting easier to navigate and there is a continuous effort to have updated forms and applications available. Look for informative links and articles on current legislation and articles that affect veterans, the military and our organization.  The SAL Detachment of Minnesota website www.mnsal.org also has a new look with more updated information.  Your 6th District website www.mn6thdistrict.org is available also for contact information and current events.  Commander Paul has been working hard to maintain the information for everyone’s use. Posts and Districts have an inexpensive option to have a website by visiting www.legionsites.com. The website is pre-loaded with templates and American Legion information and is very user friendly for uploading general photos and information.  Our Post pays $199.00 a year to maintain the domain name. 

If you are on Facebook, watch for increased presence of our Department of Minnesota.  A new marketing firm has been hired and is working to create more awareness The American Legion in our state.  None of this information is available unless there is good content to upload.  We all need to publicize and share the activities our members are doing every day.

Reminder, www.legion.org and www.mylegion.org have an enormous amount of information and resources available.  Who we are, what we do and guidance on how we carry-out our mission is readily available for anyone’s use.  

Todays media has a rap for fake news.  With all the enormous amounts of information we have thrown at us everyday it gets difficult to filter out the misinformation.  The resources I provided are ones you can trust for valuable information to share with everyone.
