The Watertown American Legion Post is participating in a Take a Veteran to Lunch program.

Take a Veteran to Lunch is a way to show appreciation for the risk and sacrifices that they have made in service of their country.

Veterans and friends of veterans, are invited to come together, talk, play cards or just eat and run.

The main objective is for veterans to socialize.

Brunch is served at the American Legion Post, 206 S. First St. from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday, except holidays, for military veterans and friends of veterans. Donations are accepted.

Anyone who has served federal active duty in the United States Armed Forces since Dec. 7, 1941, and have been honorably discharged or are still serving is eligible for membership in the American Legion.

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness.

It is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to fellow service members and veterans.
