November impact report shows Legion support for kids, veterans

E-mail Print PDF

American Legion National Commander James “Bill” Oxford challenged the organization in October to “build a Foundation for the Future” by contributing to the Veterans & Children Foundation. The foundation provides cash grants to veteran and military families with children at home that are facing financial hardships. It also pays for American Legion service officer training and support.

The November Membership Impact Report shows, in numbers, just how much the foundation means to The American Legion’s mission. Also this month’s “Moment in History” panel looks back at the transition from Armistice Day to Veterans Day, after a 1951 American Legion resolution.
