"Need A Lift" discontinued. For 62 years, The American Legion "Need A Lift?" handbook and CD-ROM served as a comprehensive financial aid reference guide to veterans, veterans’ dependents and members of the Legion Family. However, the Legion has decided to discontinue its production as it is now possible for individuals to easily search the Internet on their own for available scholarships and college information. Communication about the discontinuation is being delivered to the department, district and post level by National Headquarters staff, but the Legion asks that you too please help spread the word.
Awards due: Department submissions for National Law Enforcement Officer and National Firefighter of the Year are due Feb. 1. The awards are presented annually at the Legion’s national convention.
