                   We welcome you all, veterans and friends, to this website for American Legion
    Yorktown Post #1009.  This website was created to help us reach out to prospective new
    members, to keep in contact with our members who have moved to other parts of the
    country, and to keep our members informed of Post happenings.  Like many things, it has
    evolved from that simple mission.  Today, local Scouts and community organizations
    check our 'Calendar of Events' months in advance to see when the Yorktown Memorial
    Day Parade or Veterans Day Parade is scheduled to help plan their own group's
    participation in them.        
                 From our 'Helpful Links' page all veterans can learn about the benefits that the
    American Legion, the world's largest service organization, has negotiated for its members
    in health insurance, pharmaceutical discounts, travel discounts, credit cards, and other
    benefits.  On this same page are links to other organizations who have information which
    might benefit veterans.  There are links to help veterans research problems unique to
    veterans in areas of mortgages, health-care, and family care.  These are not all-inclusive,
    but we have tried to provide information that is middle-of-the-road and not slanted
    towards a company that is only interested in getting money from veterans.
                 Our Post Legionnaires, and any veteran, can use this site to keep up to date on
    Post news and activities by checking our 'Post e-Newsletter' page which has all past issues
    of our informative newsletter.
                 We hope that you enjoy this website and that you find the information it provides
    useful to you.  Feel free to contact us with any comments or suggestions to improve our
                 Veterans and Legionnaires please contact us to renew lapsed memberships, or to
    join the American Legion for the first time.  It only takes a few moments to join, and the
    price of your membership can be saved on your first discounted auto rental or hotel stay.  
    It is your membership that strengthens the American Legion.  Every day in Afghanistan
    and other hot-spots around the world US military forces suffer terribly disabling injuries.  
    A strong Legion is needed to push the US Senate and Congress for increased medical care
    and pension benefits for these disabled servicemen and women,... and the disabled
    veterans they will become.  Join us for this fight.
