Department of Minnesota, 6th District

Jason Pierce

6th District Legion Rider Representative



Hello Legionnaires

I have been given the honor to represent the American Legion Riders in the 6th District. I would like to extend our best wishes to Leslie Kruft in these trying times.

My name is Jason Pierce. Being an Army veteran and PUFL with the American Legion have given me opportunities for continued growth. I am currently serving as the Post Historian for Aitkin-Lee Post 86. In addition I am also the Riders Director for the same post.

At the Riders meeting during Fall Conference there were many things discussed. The Legacy Run was discussed and the numbers are in. From 2023 and going forward, the Legacy Run will be held the last weekend in July, and will be over four days. 2023 will be in the northern half of the state with one stop being in Middle River. I will be sharing more details as I get them. The Run for 85 will be in Forest Lake in 2023 and Slayton in 2024. If your Post or Chapter is interested in hosting the Run for 85 in the future, please let us know and we will send in your request.

With winter coming and as we put the bikes away, it is time to give thanks. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
