News from NEC meeting

Several items of importance to Iowa Legionnaires came from the National Executive Committee meeting earlier this week. Following the adjustment in eligibility dates, a small alteration in the Preamble to our National Constitution has been mad. Now instead of Great Wars, the fifth line reads “To preserve the memories and incidents of our association in all wars”. Recitation of the Preamble during the opening of our meetings should include that change. It is available here.
