AND THE COMMUNITY
OF ROYSE CITY
Veteran's face numerous hardships after they leave the military. Often times veterans struggle with physical and mental scars that they carry around for the remainder of their life.
The American Legion was founded in 1919, at that time soldiers only received a $60 check and a train ticket home. There was no healthcare benefits, education benefits or any other type of benefits we enjoy today.
The American Legion has been the leader in fighting for veteran rights. The American Legion wrote the GI Bill and created the organization that was the precursor to the Veterans Administration.
Today we fight to ensure our female veterans have adequate care, agent orange benefits for blue water veterans, and much much more.
