Whether he's performing country music hits to Legionnaires in the United States or troops stationed in Iraq, Michael Peterson continues to raise awareness and money for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship fund. The scholarship's mission is to ensure that children whose parents died while on active military duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, receive the opportunity to attend college. And through his musical talent, Peterson is helping the Legacy scholarship meet its mission.
The country music star is donating 50 percent of the net profits from the sale of his DVD, "It's Who We Are," and CD, "You Could Hear A Pin Drop," to the Legacy Scholarship fund.
The CD features eight songs, including "You Can Hear a Pin Drop," which honors veterans, especially World War II veterans. The DVD contains the following five segments:
The song, "It's Who We Are."
A discussion on The American Legion's Four Pillars, programs and activities.
Two 30-second television public service announcements on the Legacy Scholarship fund and one on the Legion.
An overview of what The American Legion Legacy Scholarship is and how it works.
Information on American Legion membership, such as how to join, eligibility requirements and department contacts.
