I Am The American Legion- Nick Palmisciano

“The Legion is only as strong as the people involved in it. I’ve never met anyone in the Legion who doesn’t have the best interest of the veteran in mind. The American Legion does more to help our nation’s veterans than any organization that I can think of.”
