Historic Fort Benjamin Harrison Post 510 has garnered the attention of the National Organization for its unparalleled achievement in membership this year. As we closed the books June 5,
National Membership Director Billy Johnson advised the department that Post 510 had achieved the highest percentage of increase over its 2015 close of books figure of all traditional American Legion posts in the nation.
Even more significant is the Post’s sustained growth of 409 percent since the close of the 2014 membership year two years ago.
"I can only echo the comments of Information Technology Deputy Director Joe Gallagher, who ran the analytics and forwarded the results to Post 510 commander Tom Winters," said Hugh Dagley, Department Adjutant. “'Absolutely fantastic … Bravo Zulu … Way to go DUDE!'”
The Post has developed a five-year membership strategy, established and trained a dedicated membership recruitment team, and partnered with key players in membership at every level of the organization.
