From every generation of Americans that has gone to war, the names of a few veterans are added to our nation's collective memory – some for selflessness and courage under fire, some for national leadership in tough times, some for their celebrity.
During the month of May, The American Legion Magazine invites you to choose who you believe to be America's most beloved veterans, casting up to 25 votes among the candidates on this page. Don't see your favorites on our list? Write in a candidate or two.
Veterans receiving the most votes will be featured in the November American Legion Magazine and online.
