This year's American Legion National College graduates made their presence felt in an atypical way. The 2009 class donated $512 to the Wounded Warrior Project . National Commander Clarence Hill passed a hat around during a college meeting, and students contributed what they could.
The class also made a lasting mark by raising $1,100 for the dialysis center in Indianapolis' Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center. The contribution was used to buy a television and other small items for patients.
"That's the first time we've ever had a group come to Indianapolis and leave their presence behind," said Legion College chancellor and Past National Commander Butch Miller.
