Make A Difference For A Service Member

The American Legion strives to ensure our veterans and their families receive the support and recognition they deserve. Every member of our organization is a wartime veteran, so we understand the value of our fellow citizens’ support during and after our military service. Saying thank you is only the beginning of how we should honor America’s newest generation of warriors and veterans. They require continued support and recognition of their unique needs. It is up to every citizen to join with the American Legion and take action to support these brave men and women. There are many ways you can make a difference.
