Current membership is at 27,103 paid members with a goal of 31,000 members by May 2018. View the updated Department Membership Report dated January 17, 2018.

Response to the Department PCI Directory was excellent and as a result, there has been a slight delay. PCI is currently working on placing Legionnaires' personal pictures next to their biographies in the Directory. PCI expects to have the complete Directory Draft to the Department Adjutant for review in mid-March. Once approved by the Department Adjutant, PCI anticipates the Directory will go to print in late March and mailed in April.

As for merchandise ordered (bags, hats, sweatshirts, etc.), PCI expects to mail those items around January 16th and those who have placed orders should expect to receive their merchandise around January 23, 2018.

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
