The recent devastating tornadoes have underscored the importance of The American Legion’s National Emergency Fund. When tornadoes, hurricanes and other natural disasters strike, the fund provides immediate financial assistance to Legion Family members recovering from the tragedy.

The Department of Veterans Affairs issued a solicitation Oct. 21 for temporary contractor support to assist in processing the increased volume of education claims received since implementing the new Post-9/11 GI Bill.
“A good temporary solution” is how American Legion National Commander Clarence Hill characterized VA’s decision to employ an outside contractor to assist in processing the large volume of GI Bill claims.
Starting Oct. 2, student veterans can apply online for emergency GI Bill payments to help cover their expenses. VA regional offices will issue checks up to $3,000 to those enrolled in schools this semester.
