Community events in District 12

We are proud to participate in the recognition of our Veterans and Military

VA First Mondays

FLAG RETIREMENT CEREMONIES

We consider the proper retirement of American, Texas and other significant flags very important.

Many American Legion Posts in Tarrant County participate in at least one "properly conducted" flag retirement ceremony each year.

VETERANS DAY PARADE

The Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade is a nationally recognized event and the American Legion in our district has been a significant partner in the Tarrant County Veterans Council that has produced the parade for over forty years.

MEMORIAL DAY SERVICES

Many American Legion Posts in Tarrant County participate in at least one service. Click here to see many of the events, yearly composits are now linked here.
