Support National Family Week, Nov. 19-25

"Family First" is the theme for American Legion National Commander Denise H. Rohan. And what better way to recognize America's families than during National Family Week, Nov. 19-25.

American Legion Family members can initiate and engage in local activities during National Family Week that promote, encourage and celebrate healthy families and communities.

Legion post's can host a family-friendly festival that includes fun children-specific activities such as face painting, bounce houses and games; conduct a community family project; invite families to a meal at the post to initiate strong communication; or host a military appreciation event.

As for military families, posts can communicate with local military families about the needs they may have if a loved one is deployed.

There are Legion-supported organizations you can work with during National Family Week that may have resources that you can use to support your week of activities.

These organizations include:
