Joel Tavera is thankful for The American Legion

The American Legion has launched a new national awareness campaign on television to raise funds that will allow the nation’s largest veterans service organization assist more veterans and their families. Joel Tavera, a retired Army staff sergeant, survived a rocket attack while on deployment to Iraq that destroyed his right leg, caused brain trauma, burned more than 60 percent of his body and left him blind. In spite of these hardships, he says he feels blessed and has The American Legion to thank. “The American Legion gives veterans like me a place to belong,” Tavera said. “They help us veterans in all aspects of life: medical, financial and even emotional.” Find out how you can help others like Joel at
