Buddy Check

As American Legion members, our most sacred responsibility is to look out for each other and our fellow veterans. To reach out to members and former members who may need help, American Legion posts are encouraged to perform this vital function whenever it makes the most sense in their communities.

This session focuses on the who, what, where, when, and why of the program and discusses the relevance, importance, and strategic objectives of taking care of our fellow veterans.
