The American Legion has been helping veterans for over 100 years
A press release states that “In keeping with the more than 100-year tradition of the American Legion, American Legion positions in this area will focus on community service and assistance to veterans. The scope and nature of the service community positions are determined by its membership and with input from local municipal and community authorities.
Since its inception in 1919, the American Legion, the world’s largest veterans service organization, has been a key advocate for veterans and has been responsible for strategic legislative initiatives such as the GI Bill and the creation of the Department of Veterans. In addition to veterans defense, the American Legion supports children and youth activities, American patriotic values, strong national defense, and quality of life issues for those serving in today’s armed forces. .”
The events will take place February 6 and 7 in Yakima and Ellensburg. They are open to veterans and their family members.
