Chartered Oct. 6, 1919, the Tomahawk American Legion Post 93 is named in memory of three local veterans: Henry Bronsted, the first Tomahawk man killed in WWI; Charles J. Searl, a Tomahawk native killed in a plane crash in WWII; and Einar Harold Ingman, a Tomahawk-area resident who received the Medal of Honor for his bravery and self-sacrifice in combat during the Korean War.
The Tomahawk American Legion is dedicated to supporting veterans, youth and the Tomahawk community overall. Legion endeavors include providing an Honor Guard and colors for parades and memorial services; providing an Honor Guard and firing squad for veterans’ funerals; maintaining grave markers and flags on veterans’ gravesites; co-sponsoring Tomahawk’s annual 9/11 remembrance ceremony and veteran banners on W. Wisconsin Ave.; supporting the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, Salvation Army, and the Tomahawk Area Food Pantry; assisting veterans with information on veterans programs; and contributing to VA hospitals.
Since our charter in 1919, our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Membership in the American Legion is open to anyone who served in the military on or after Dec. 7, 1941. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.
Tomahawk American Legion, Sons of American Legion, and Legion Auxiliary meetings occur the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. All who are interested in becoming a member or supporting the Legion are invited.
To the wonderful patriotic citizens of the Tomahawk community: THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNWAVERING SUPPORT OF OUR POST!!!
