February Impact: Legion lauded in Washington
Ukrainian Ambassador Oksana Markarova and U.S. Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Stephen Lightfoot thanked The American Legion for its support on a number of fronts – from those defending against Russian aggression to those serving in the U.S. Armed Forces today – during the Washington Conference.
The conference, which wrapped up a busy February for The American Legion, also included a heavy emphasis on the Be the One initiative to reduce veteran suicide, including a vow from the VA secretary to bolster peer-to-peer help for at-risk veterans in the coming year.
Meanwhile, youth programs are gearing up, with more than 660 teams already registered for American Legion Baseball this year.
