Programs are the life blood of our organization. It is through our programs that we ensure our veterans get the medical care, and benefits they were promised and deserve. It is through our programs that we instill a sense of patriotism in our communities. It is our programs that provide us the opportunity to mentor our nation's youth. And it is our programs that give us all ownership in the greatest organization known to man.
With an alumni base that includes more than half of current Major League Baseball players, American Legion Baseball is one of the most prominent and tradition-rich amateur athletic leagues in existence.
The program is always growing, and participation is easy.
About 5,000 teams compete each year, so there’s ample opportunity for new players to join, and for coaches who want to start a team. The league also employs a large number of umpires and other volunteers.
MONEY can't buy it. SCIENCE can't duplicate it. PEOPLE can't live without it. But, in one brief, simple gesture, many of the members of your American Legion Post-and its Auxiliary Unit-can join with others who are able to give life's most important asset-actually, a gift of life-a pint of blood.
Participation by your Post/Unit in The American Legion's Blood Donor Program opens another door for a great and continuing humanitarian opportunity. Here is community service of the highest order. Here is a program which meets an ever-present need. Here is a program which shows the community the depth of your Post's concern for the well-being of your fellow citizens.
