Legion Lager is Important!

I recently read an article from a St Catharines Ontario newspaper report. It was reporting on the local Legion branch,”Merritton Legion.

It is a fact most branches today survive on monies from liquor and lotto machines. Most branch memberships are made up of civilians with perhaps a sprinkling of veterans. In todays legions, membership is open to all and sundry. To claim they need a liquor license in order to remain open says very little about being an organization for veterans. What comes to mind for me is what veterans is she referring too? Could be members like Tom Eagles? or the many other highly legion decorated associate members?
