WHO FORMS PART OF THE AMERICAN LEGION
The American Legion is a service organization formed by men and women who served in the Armed Forces of the USA during time of war. They are dedicated to serving their comrades in distress, the widows and orphans of fallen comrades, and their Communities. Only in the State of Jalisco they have more than 300 Accredited Members in the Chapala-Ajijic-Zapopan area. These provide support to 7 orphanages, their local Red Cross Hospital and help other altruist organizations. In Mexico City, Alan Seeger Post 2, at Celaya 25, Condesa, was founded on March 15, 1920.
THEIR HISTORY IN MEXICO
Their History is .. fascinating. Along with their comrades of arms of Escuadrón 201 they meet weekly at Celaya 25, Condesa, where their headquarters here are located.
El Escuadrón 201 (also known as "The Aztec Eagles") was a Mexican fighter squadron that aided the Allied war effort during World War II. Squadron 201 was composed of more than 300 volunteers – 36 experienced pilots and the rest ground crewmen. The ground crewmen were electricians, mechanics and radiomen.Their formation was prompted by the attack by German submarines against Mexican oil tankers that were providing fuel and materials to the Allies. These attacks eventually caused the Mexican government to declare war on Germany. The Aztec Eagles were attached to the U. S. Air Force's 58th Fighter Group during the liberation of the main Phillipine island of Luzon in the summer of 1945. The pilots flew P-47D "Thunderbolt" single-seat fighter aircraft (see photo below) carrying out tactical air support missions. This marked the first time Mexican troops were trained for overseas combat. The "Aztec Eagles" flew more than 90 combat missions, totaling more than 1,900 hours of flight time. They participated in the Allied effort to bomb Luzon and Formosa (now Taiwan) to push the Japanese out of those islands. During their fighting in the Philippines, 5 pilots died (one was shot down, one crashed, and three ran out of fuel and died at sea).The squadron was the subject of the Mexican film "Escuadrón 201", directed by Jaime Salvador and released in 1945. To date there are 10 -out of three hundred- survivors, among others, retired Mexican Air Force Colonel Garduño.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO MEXICO
The American Legion founded in 1947 the Boy & Girl Scouts which are of British origin. In the early 1950's Alan Seeger Post no. 2 purchased a plot of ground in the American Cemetry to take care of indigent veterans, for whom it provides funeral services, if requested. The Mexican Battle Flags, captured by the US Army in the Chapultepec Castle during the 1846-1848 Mexican- American War were returned to Mexico by the U. S. Government after two years of indefatigable labor by several members of Post 2. President Truman authorized the return of the flags, which were officially received by President Miguel Alemán. In 1949 during the polio epidemic the Legionnaires brought to D. F. the first iron lung and closed circuit TV set for the viewing of operations. This equipment was donated to the American British Cowdray Hospital (ABC). To date they run La Esperanza, sister Keller's home for abandoned girls and Casa Hogar de Niñas Invidentes Rosa de la Torre for blind girls. Presidente and Mrs Vicente Fox donated computers for these girls. With the Braille system they are able to receive education. In addition, Legionnaires support since March 21, 1957 Legión Americana School for more than 1,000 indigent kids, located in Santa Marta Petlacalco, Ajusco area. WIth their social events they raise funds to keep these social functions in place.
These organizations are comprised by a large number of expatriates many of whom have chosen México as their new home. Not because of job-related obligations, rather because they have decided to do so. Each one of them has programs, concerns that have the same common goal: the Community's well-being. Starting in 2002 we have been publishing Security Corner, AT THE SAME TIME, provided Seminars on Crime Prevention, Personal Protection, with the relevant support of Mexico City's Police Department.
