To Strengthen a Nation: Prelude

To Strengthen a Nation: The American Legion Story, hosted by Air Force veteran Lorna Duyn and Army veteran Jeric Wilhelmsen, connects the dots between legacy and vision of the nation’s largest veterans service organization in honor of its 2019 centennial. In the Prelude episode, the veterans, both members of Hollywood, Calif., American Legion Post 43, begin their cross-country journey to discover the origins and reasons behind services and programs they now fulfill as Legionnaires. The Prelude burrows back to the roots of veteran organizations, from the Revolution to the Civil War, and the lessons The American Legion learned from its predecessors.
