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.
Please consider a donation today to help a fellow veteran through a tough time.
Almost every veteran has had training in at least one career field plus basic training. This is a lot of education to find them with more than double the rate of unemployment then those without a high school diploma!
