AMERICAN VETERANS

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

         Your  veteran’s origination's need your support.

The American Legion, AMVETS and the Veterans of Foreign Wars would like to invite all honorably discharged veterans to join and support these service originations. These veterans’ originations work hard to aid and support all veterans. They support current military personal and all fellow veterans-each one of them, whether it is going to bat for their earned entitlements or just providing the benefits information they may need. Members like you make a difference. The American Legion, AMVETS, and VFW membership provides for our veterans and their families in a wide variety of ways. From assistance in obtaining benefits and representing your interests in Washington D.C., to numerous money-saving discounts on products and services for the American Veterans.

Just some of the services performed by these Veterans' Posts: 

1. During the hurricanes devastation of the Gulf Cost the American

Legion Posts sprang into action. Some became shelters for veterans made homeless by the storm… served hot meals… provided clothing and personal needs… searched for survivors.

2. In all, more than $1.7 million in immediate cash grants were issued from Nation Headquarters to assist veterans and their communities in the hurricane zone.

3. Last year, Legion Post provided military funeral honors for 93,603 veterans who, without your membership, might not have been so honored; the AMVETS also served as many veterans with military funerals.

4. The Legion and AMVETS Post around the country have “adopted” dozens of active duty units, National Guard Armories and Reserve Centers to provide much needed support for our troops.

5. 40,815 Legionnaires donated a total of 92,273 pints of blood in 2006-7.

6. 2,500 Boy Scout units and 70,000 young people in Scouting are sponsored by the Legion Posts.

7. Your dues have also helped the Legion provide scholarships to the children of the U.S. military personnel who have died in action since the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

8. The Legion’s and AMVETS regularly perform quality control surveys at VA medical facilities throughout America--- again, funded by your dues.

9. 25,000 young men annually develop hands on understanding of government through The American Legion’s Boys State and Boys Nation programs. The Legion Ladies Auxiliary Organizations provide the same for the girls.

10. 97,000 young men ages 15-19 participated in American Legion Baseball in 2006.

11. 5,000 high school students participated in the National Oratorical Contest competition last year, a program that engages the minds of young leaders and cultivates understanding of the U.S. Constitution.

12. The American Legion has never forgotten, nor will it ever forget, our nation’s POW/MIAs, and it continues to elevate public awareness.

13. The American Legion & AMVETS continually support our local communities and schools (College grants, etc.) They help the needy when fire, sickness or death effect citizens of our community.
