Nearly $670,000 in American Legion Legacy Scholarships were awarded. Hundreds of veterans received free assistance with their VA claims applications and appeals. The American Legion Memorials Database continued to grow, and a Legion-supported bill to give World War II veterans easier access to VA health care was introduced.
The coronavirus pandemic did not keep The American Legion from fulfilling its pillar purposes to youth, veterans, military and patriotic communities in May 2020. In fact, posts throughout the nation served food, collected money, gave blood and donated time to help others get through the pandemic.
