Since the first Missouri Boys State in 1938, the American Legion has given so much to ensure not only the success of the program, but the success of Missouri's youth. This could not be done without the commitment of the Legionnaires from the Missouri Department Headquarters to the individual Legion Posts across the state. Their service to country and community is greatly appreciated. A special thanks goes to those Legionnaires that support the program both at home and during the MBS session in Warrensburg, MO.
