If not wearing the cap. Place the right hand over the heart. Old-time Legionnaires often salute the Commander when standing to make a report or to get permission to speak, but it is not required. Once the meeting has started and the US Flag is posted, always salute the Flag when entering or leaving the meeting hall.
Here are some basics:
The headgear of the Legionnaire is called the Legion cap. The Legion cap is considered the official Legion uniform. Post 654’s standard embroidery for our cap is:
Right side has “654”
Left side has “Texas”
Front has the “Longhorn” (the state symbol)
Style “State” and Crown “Regular”
The left side, with the Legion emblem, must always be facing up when placed on a flat surface.
The right side of the cap has membership badges or patches of position, military emblems, miniature medals, and ribbons and other patriotic or Legion pins and devices. If a flag is worn on this side, it must be the topmost pin.
During the National Anthem, a salute is rendered unless singing. If singing, remove the cap and place over your heart.
When reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, praying, or remembering fallen comrades, remove the cap and place over your heart.
Post 654 does not keep any inventory on hand. All items may be purchased through the American Legion’s vendor, Flag & Emblem.
We are a casual post and do not require full uniforms at our general meetings. You will see many members simply wearing a Legion cap with their civilian attire. The basic recommended uniform is dark slacks, socks, and shoes; white Legion polo; and Legion cap.
We love welcoming new members to the American Legion Family. You will need to a copy of your DD-214 (showing type of discharge), a Post 654 Application filled out, and your first year’s membership dues. Post 654 has $45 annual membership dues, a portion of which goes to National and District headquarters. The remainder is used for Post programs and food. Contact our Membership Chair/1st Vice Commander for more information.
Thank you for considering Spring Branch Post 654 as your Legion home. A simple Member Data Form needs to be filled out, signed, copy of DD-214, and turned in to our Membership Chair/1st Vice Commander. Your membership status will be assessed to accept your transfer to Post 654.
