    Hello American Legion,

    My name is Matthew Mai and I am currently a senior attending Hackensack High School. I am filling out your scholarship and notice that it says there needs to be a signature from a Post Commander on the scholarship itself though there is no given page or space for that. Is that a requirement and if so what should I do?

    Thank you,

      Hello Past Commander Ray
      Since you’re in NH now, is the cemetery specifically for Veterans? Have you reached out to your Legion service officer, county, or state departments? Maybe speak with a cemetery representative first and see what they recommend, or each out to your local VA counselor.
      Thank you for your service. Have a safe, happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
