More opportunities to win, support area veterans in 2024

Post members and numerous Tomahawk-area establishments began selling tickets in spring 2023. Thanks to the generosity of supporters in communities near and far, hundreds of tickets sold. All monies raised through ticket sales and private donations will go to the $300,000.00 Renovation Project, which is nearly at the halfway point.

Post 93 plans additional raffles in 2024 and looks forward to awarding many more great prizes in support of its endeavors to support veterans and their families.

About the Tomahawk American Legion

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 supports veterans, youth and the Tomahawk community overall. American Legion membership is open to all veterans exclusive of time or area served. There is also a Sons of the American Legion (SAL) Squadron open to any man whose immediate relatives (parent, grandparent) are veterans.

Tomahawk American Legion, SAL and Legion Auxiliary meetings occur the third Tuesday of every month at 6:45 p.m. All who are interested in becoming a member or supporting the Legion are invited.
