Our main objective is " To help the children and families of severely wounded or fallen soldiers who have served in Afghanistan and/or Iraq."

Our other objectives are to...

  • meet our returning troops at the airport to welcome them home
  • escort home the severly wounded or fallen soldier
  • provide money to children and families during the transition phase for food, medical expenses or whatever is needed until they are able to support themselves
  • raise funds for the "American Legion Scholarship Fund" to ensure children of the severely wounded or fallen soldiers get an education
