A Message from the Commander...

Department of Nebraska American Legion Commander Jim Costello

Welcome to the Nebraska American Legion website. We have over 33,000 Legionnaires throughout the great State of Nebraska. Within our website you will find information on our Department Leadership, Programs, and meetings at both the Department and National level.

My goal is for every member to start a Department of Nebraska BUCKET LIST. We have all talked about having a bucket list of things we want to do. Well, here is an opportunity for you to complete a BUCKET LIST for The American Legion. Not sure what to put in your American Legion bucket list? Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

1. Membership-Renew/Retain/Recruit
2. Completed Consolidated Post Report
3. Donate to the Child Welfare Foundation
4. Donate to the Temporary Financial Assistance Program
5. Donate to the National Emergency Fund
6. Sponsor/and or sign up a student to attend Boys State
7. Conduct a Post/District Oratorical Contest
8. Sign up a student to attend Junior Law Cadet
9. Present a School Talk/Flag Program in your community
10. Develop an American Legion Public Awareness Program within your community

I look forward to serving the entire American Legion Family. "Members are the backbone of The American Legion."

James Costello
