American Legion Emblem

Reconnect Program

Through this program, relations can and do take many forms.  Service members and their families become personally acquainted with American Legion family members - those who belong to the Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary or the Sons of The American Legion.
 
For their part, the military installations schedule opportunities for veterans to come on base, tour facilities, even stay overnight, and personally see our nation's uniformed men and women at work.
 
In many communities, the Legion likewise provides valuable support for the installation, which may be short-staffed due to heavy wartime deployment.  Military units, bases, armories, and reserve centers have been "adopted" by Legion posts who offer their services, including providing comfort and support for troops as well as the families of deployed personnel.  Legion "care packages" are sent to men and women serving overseas at various times of the year.
 
IDEAS ON WHAT YOU CAN DO!
 
-Attend National Guard and Reserve Events
-Connect with family readiness groups
-Sponsor Deployment and returning events in your Communities
-Share our story and let them know how The American Legion Stands ready to serve them, their families and their Communities
 
At home, the Reconnect Program also makes today's service members and their families aware of the many Legion programs designed to help them and their communities, now and in the future. Such as:
-Troop and Family Support Program
-Veterans Assistance Fund
-Camp American Legion
-SAL Josh Dogs to name a few
