American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters wants to hear from YOU! How do you work the ALA mission? Have you recently hosted an event for veterans, military, and their families and have a story or photos to share? Has your ALA unit done something outstanding for your community that’s of national interest? Show your dedication to Service Not Self by sending us photos and stories of you serving the mission! Members of all ages and from all organizations of The American Legion Family are welcome to submit content for possible inclusion in ALA media.
What kind of information should I include in my story? The more information, the better! Don’t worry about your writing skills or being a wordsmith – just tell us your story as best you can, and we can take it from there or contact you for more information, if needed. Be sure to include pertinent details like the Five W’s – who (was involved), what (happened), where (event or activity was held), when (date), and why (was the event, etc. held). Remember: The more information and details you include, the better we’re able to showcase it in ALA media, so tell us everything!
What kind of photos should I submit? Photos should reflect the ALA mission and values. Please consider photos with smiling, positive people actively engaged in serving veterans, military, and their families. Examples are volunteers handing out items to veterans at a stand down or members of The American Legion Family fully branded and serving current servicemembers’ families at an event.
Pictures should be provided in maximum resolution in JPEG format with captions provided. Sending us material from your smartphone? Please be sure to select the largest file size possible when emailing the message to us. Example: On an iPhone, select the “Actual Size” option.
