The officers and members of the Scituate American Legion
Post 144 welcome you to our WEB page.
We stand ready to encourage patriotism, serve our community,
and to honor veterans.
Join us in paying tribute to a great nation and it's men and
women who served our country.
Whether you served on the battlefield or in support of the battlefield,
whether you served on a quiet ocean or a war torn ocean, it doesn't
matter. All that matters is that you served your country when it was
shedding its blood.
Scituate is located 17 miles south
of Boston on the coast.
From the American Legion website article; War Era Debate: A Veteran is a Veteran
A post by the National Adjutant
"The question needs to be asked: Are the vast majority of people who have served during wartime and not been shot at any less
of a veteran of that war than those who were on the front line?
Are they not entitled to be called and to think of themselves as War Veterans? Is there something curiously less than acceptable about
their service? Should they be not proud that they served?
Do they stand in the shadow of those whom they supported? Are they like the red-haired stepchild? If 90 percent of those who enlist
are going to end up being "less than real veterans," why should they bother?
On the other hand, the hand of God or Uncle Sam can at any moment change one of those guys' statuses, and that guy has no control
over what happened. Nonetheless, when called, he was ready.
He trained just as hard as the next guy, and was just as willing as the next guy to go where sent. These are real questions and they go
right to the heart of honorable military service."
So all of you veterans, who served during the appropriate times as set forth in the American Legion requirements,
please join us.
You are very welcomed!
