Notice to All Legion, Auxiliary, and SAL
Checking the Wellbeing of Post Veterans
Due to mandates from State and National Public Officials, our group legion meetings and activities have been canceled or postponed.
During these difficult times, with social isolation being mandated, we do want to keep in touch with our Legion Family Members, especially our members that are seniors and may be at higher risk.
Please check in with your family members regularly. At this time, we do not really know how long these mandates will be kept in effect. If you or other members may be in need, please contact the Post.
We have started working on developing a team and creating a response plan for how we can best assist our members. We will post this information as soon as possible. Until then please reach out to the Post if you or a family member is in need of immediate assistance.
Call: 715-581-5210 (leave a message and we will contact you)

Heavy duty snow plow truck delivered to Camp American Legion
Wausau Post 10 provides over 80% funding for vehicle
On Friday, Dec 20th, Montgomery-Plant-Dudley Post 10 Wausau presented a new RAM 2500 truck with BOSS V-Snowplow to Don Grundy, Director of Camp American Legion.
Wausau Post 10 members passed a motion that permitted the Post to make the largest donation in their 100-year history, approving a donation not to exceed $35,000 for the 3/4 size truck and snowplow.
Working with the Department Adjutant Amber Nikolai, Post 10 funds were placed in the Wisconsin American Legion Foundation, along with a previous donation of $10,000 from the American Legion Department of Wisconsin Legion Riders.
The Acacia Philanthropy Foundation of Wausau and The Robert & Mary Jo Hartwig Foundation also contributed funding for project. Graphics for the vehicle were donated by Flip-Side Graphics of Wausau.
Following a bidding process, the truck was purchased in Wausau from the Brickner Family dealership who provided a significant discount to this Post 10 project. Document signing to procure the vehicle was completed in early December, followed by vehicle prep and snowplow attachment enabling immediate use at the Camp.
The truck replaces a 20+ year old vehicle that was no longer road worthy. This upgrade in vehicles will allow the Camp to remain open longer, with year-round possibilities. Additionally, the vehicle will be able to be used in local events, promoting the Camp and American Legion in the Northwoods area. Thanks to Wausau Post 10 Liaison Officer Thom Passow, for his leadership in pursuing the bids, coordinating the financials with the Department, and guidance throughout the procurement process. Also, thanks to all Post 10 members for their fund raising efforts that enabled the Post to fulfill our obligation of “Veterans Still Helping Veterans”.
