Things to do

(Continued)

“The American Legion of Iowa is involved in many areas that are of concern to every community in Iowa,” said Schaffer. “Along with fighting for the health and education benefits for all military veterans and today’s soldiers, the American Legion of Iowa hosts a number of programs that most communities don’t even realize we are doing.”

The American Legion is often the first call when a veteran passes away in a community, so that proper military honors are provided. They also are a reliable source for information concerning service-connected injuries/illnesses and claims. The organization further provides emergency funds for our veterans’ families, works to provide scholarship opportunities to the children and youth, and educate schools about the proper respect for our U.S. flag.
