The “Red, White and Blue Award Program” recognizes individuals, organizations, business, and industries, other than The American Legion and its members or its associated organizations, for promoting Americanism through action.

Posts must submit nominations in writing for this award to their County Chairman anytime during the year.  It is requested that nominations be submitted on entry forms that are available from Department Headquarters.  County Chairmen are authorized to determine a candidate eligible for this honor.  The County Chairmen must be prudent in their decisions and stay within the guidelines of intent established for the program.  For those individual/organization that demonstrated patriotic acts “above and beyond” the norm, County Chairmen may submit the nomination to Department for consideration of The American Legion, Department of New York “Red, White and Blue Award”.  County Chairmen may determine the time and place for presenting the Citations and it should be done so the local Post, Auxiliary Unit, and SAL Squadron can be present.  Local news media should be invited to cover the presentation.  Citations are available by request from Department Headquarters.

Examples of qualifying recipients:

4. Industries that make a special effort to display and fly the United States flag at conspicuous places throughout their facilities and promote AMERICANISM to their employees.

This is The American Legion’s way of saying “Thank You” to those citizens who are showing that they are proud to be an American.
