The American Legion -

Veterans Serving Veterans

Since its founding in 1919, the 2.7 million-member American Legion is the nation's preeminent service organization for veterans of the U.S. armed forces, including active duty, National Guard and Reserves, and their families. A powerful voice for veterans in Washington, The American Legion drafted the original GI Bill and was instrumental in establishing the agency that today is the federal Department of Veterans Affairs.

Attention on Deck

As of October 27, 2020 the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) has moved the City and County of Denver to the more restrictive Safer at Home Dial Level 3.

Face coverings are still mandatory while inside any public space. Businesses must reduce their operating capacity to 25 percent. They must ensure they are able to maintain six-foot physical distancing.

American Legion Post 1 will comply with the above requirements and we ask for your cooperation in meeting these requirements. Thank you for helping and please continue to support our Post.

SUMMARY: "A malicious website pretending to be the live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unwitting internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website infects the user with the AZORult trojan, an information stealing program which can infiltrate a variety of sensitive data. It is likely being spread via infected email attachments, malicious online;  advertisements, and social engineering. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website."
