    The following is a list of previous Junior VFW and
    American Legion National Champions.

    The information came from various articles in Drum
    Corps News and Eastern Review. After 1972 though,
    there wasn't too much written about these shows.
    Maybe someone can fill in the blanks and add some
    years to the list if the shows were still held.


    In the spirit of Drum Corps,
