I’m asking for help from the entire community.  Our Mount Horeb American Legion has been around for nearly 100 years.  Over those 100 years we’ve been involved in our community, supported our Veterans in the community, and throughout the state and country, supported our youth and families in the area, honored Veterans at their funerals, supported our schools, etc…
We’re celebrating our 100th year, our National Headquarters was formed on 15 March 1919 and our local Post here in Mount Horeb received its Charter on the 23rd of October, 1919.  If you have pictures of the Color Guard marching down Main Street during the Frolic Parade or Legion Members honoring Veterans at funerals please contact us at mhamlegionpost113@gmail.com or call us at 437-0113. 
As we prepare for a celebration and a presentation about our local Legion we have some information.  However, we know there are community members that could help us put together so much more.  Some of you had family members that were members of the Mount Horeb American Legion that could share stories about their experiences, others may have stories of how Legion Members touched their lives.  We know that hundreds of students have gone to Badger Boys and Girls State with the help of the Legion and the Auxiliary.
We know who our first Commander was, and who our Post is named after, but there are so many other things we don’t know.  For instance, our National organization has included women from our inception.  Does anyone know who the first woman to serve in our Mount Horeb American Legion? Anyone have a picture of Otto Gesme our first Mount Horeb American Legion Commander?  Does anyone have a picture of Legion gatherings over the years? 
Over the next month we are conducting what our National Commander is calling a “Buddy Check”, we are attempting to reach out to Veterans in our community, whether they’re Legion Members or not to see how they’re doing.  Please help us contact Veterans, call or email us (at the contact info listed above) to have us contact a loved one, or a friend that served our great nation.
