The Blue Star Recognition Program is to recognize those families who have members in the Armed Forces of the United States. The Blue Star Banner lets all who see it know that someone from that home is defending our freedom.

American Legion Post 359 is honored to help recognize these families. We of the Legion have "been there" and know all too well of the sacrifices required of families with members in military service. We will be glad to order Blue Star Banners for families to display in their homes, and lapel pins for wear by family members.

The cost of these items is as follows:

BLUE STAR BANNERS - $15.00 each
BLUE STAR LAPEL PINS - $10.00 each

These items are ordered from American Legion National Emblem Sales and will be shipped directly to your home.

To obtain these items, contact the Post by visiting our Headquarters at 4826 Frederick Avenue in St. Joseph, Missouri, or by filling out an order form you can obtain by clicking here and mailing it to the Post. Payment must be made at the time of the order or included with your mail-in form to us.
