Last year during celebration of April is Children & Youth Month, Sons of The American Legion Squadron 331 in Omaha, Neb., donated 186 GI Josh Dog gift sets to patients at the local Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. Squadron 331 raised nearly $7,000 to purchase the GI Josh Dog gift sets, and Legion Family members delivered the dogs to every child at the hospital to bring them comfort, security and companionship during their road to recovery.

The American Legion Department of California can claim the most National Oratorical Contest champions, eight, since the program began 77 years ago. The Department of Maryland has had six winners, and the departments of Illinois, New York and Texas have had five winners each. www.legion.org/oratorical
