Share your National Buddy Check Week stats with us

With the first U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Buddy Check Week having wrapped up on Oct. 20, we’d like to get an idea of how many Buddy Check calls members of the American Legion Family made during those five days.

And please remember to also share your efforts and photos in the Buddy Check section of
