2020 Flag Day

In honor the Flag Day, our Americanism Team has put together a brief overview of the #ALMBS Americanism Programs.

Though impressive and attractive, it isn’t the fabric, the cloth or even the colors that make the Flag of the United States special. It is the people who defend it and the nation that it represents which makes the American Flag the envy of the world. And long will she fly!

God Bless America and God Bless our Flag.

2020 American Legion Mountaineer Boys State Session Cancelled

Friends of The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State,

It is with a heavy heart, we write to inform you that The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State has been cancelled for 2020. This decision has been the hardest decision to make during one of the hardest times of our lives. Please know this decision was made after thorough deliberation with our program’s senior leadership and based on the current national and state-wide effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The American Legion Auxiliary Rhododendron Girls State, The American Legion Boys Nation, The American Legion National Oratorical Finals, and Junior Shooting Sports Competitions have also been cancelled for 2020. West Virginia becomes the 21st state to cancel Boys State this year.

Since 1936, The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State has been West Virginia’s Premier Leadership Academy, and this is officially the 3rd time in her history that the program has been cancelled. It hasn’t been since
