Department President Jeanne Haas has been a
member of Phillips Stuckey Shaffer Unit #296 in
Gridley since 1955. Jeanne gained her
eligibility through her father, Edward Crane,
who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Her late husband, Gary, served in the Air Force
during the Vietnam Conflict.
Using the theme "Hand in Hand, Together We
Stand, Keeping the Promises," the members of the
Department of Kansas, American Legion Family
pledge to work together to promote the programs
of patriotism, Veteran's care, Americanism, and
our future. Department President Jeanne
has chosen the Junior Patriot Booklets on
Americanism, Veterans Affairs, and Poppy as a
way to increase information, and show visibility
while educating the youth of the state as her
President's Project. The RED Letter
Campaign highlights existing funds that members
can contribute to for the programs of the
American Legion Auxiliary. Creating a
strong, visible American Legion Family is a goal
for this leadership year, with American Legion
Family shirts available for purchase to wear as
members of this organization volunteer in their
communities and across our state. Working
towards meeting the five goals of the Kansas
Strategic Plan is the focus of the 2015-2016
year in the Department of Kansas.
