Legionnaires Continue to Serve


Legion Riders
American Legion
Sons of the American Legion

Since the first Missouri Boys State in 1938, the American Legion has given so much to ensure not only the success of the program, but the success of Missouri's youth. This could not be done without the commitment of the Legionnaires from the Missouri Department Headquarters to the individual Legion Posts across the state. Their service to country and community is greatly appreciated. A special thanks goes to those Legionnaires that support the program both at home and during this 2013 MBS session in Warrensburg, MO.

We lost a dear friend of the Missouri Boys State program this year. Delbert L. Snodgrass faithfully supported Boys State for years and attended the last 14 sessions. He will be missed.
