POST NAMESAKE:


The membership came up with the name "Spirit of Freedom". It went well with our number 76. It would also reflect upon the freedom gained from the 1776 Government of the King of England, who would not allow the "Second class citizens" of the Colonies to be considered equal to those living in England.


Our logo apply our Post number and name, showing who we are and what we sand for.
With this magnanimous donation of several hundred dollars, we were able to move forward with our endeavor. The design artist was given the following facts:


1. Our number and it's reference to the 1776 era.


2. The Minute Man soldier with rifle, representing the citizen, the veteran soldier, always ready to defend our country and protect our freedoms.


3. That we are members of the American Legion.


4. That we are a Nevada Post, the State should be represented as well as Las Vegas.


5. The designer included in his first draft, the State motto, "Battle Born."


6. We wanted 13 stars, to represent the original States. No matter how hard he tried, the artist could not do this one without the start looking like dots. We had to settle for 11 stars including the one marking the
City of Las Vegas, for the representation. Since we began in the 9th month and have 11 stars - does that make us the first 9/11 Post?
