American Legion GI Bill exhibit helps dedicate new veterans resource center
The American Legion tribute to “The Greatest Legislation” will be part of events marking the dedication of a new home to the National Veterans Research Center at Syracuse University on Nov. 3.
The American Legion centennial museum exhibit that toured the country between 2017 and 2019 will once again help tell the story of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944 and the organization’s role in bringing it to life. The exhibit will be on display during the dedication and celebration of the Daniel & Gayle D’Aniello building, home to the National Veterans Resource Center in Syracuse, N.Y.
The new facility at Syracuse University is home to the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), Office of Veteran and Military Affairs, along with Army and Air Force ROTC, and represents the university’s commitment to cultivate and lead innovative academic, government and community collaborations that empower veterans. The IVMF received The American Legion’s prestigious Patriot Award in 2020.
The dedication ceremony will begin on Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 3-4:30 pm EDT. Registration is available online for both in person attendance and live-stream viewing is available here.
“The Greatest Legislation: An American Legion Salute to the GI Bill” will be on display from Nov. 1-14 at the Daniel & Gayle D’Aniello Building National Veterans Research Center.
