Post 43 Members Graduate Legion Course

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Legionnaires took part in an in-person class on Legion history and heritage facilitated by Tim Mosman and Olivia Headley at Post 43 here Jan. 21.

The American Legion Extension Institute (ALEI) is the American Legion’s official training program for officers, members, Legion College applicants, and those who simply want to expand their knowledge of the nation’s largest veterans service organization.

This two-hour class covered History & Organization, Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism and Children & Youth programs.

Each graduate received a lapel/cap pin, a certificate of completion from the National Commander and full access to the online version the ALEI (a $5 savings).

Students left with a full grounding and understanding of the Legion's history, four pillars, goals, and services.

Congratulations to our graduates: Dwayne Conyers, David Dolce, Alfonso Hernandez, Michael Hjelmstad, Sidney Hoffner, Patrick Horton, Frances Horton, Sean Jones, Jerry Martinez, Andrew Mitchell and Matthew Skomo.  Special thanks to Tim and Olivia for their dedication and service in putting on this course.
