Do you remember when your unit was under fire? You were scared. You didn't know whether you would ever get
home again, see your family, your loved ones. And the only thing that you could count on in that instant was
your buddy. And you knew he was counting on you too.

Perhaps you were one of the lucky ones who never saw combat. Do you remember the tediousness of garrison life?
Do you remember the interminable hurry up and wait? Do you remember the inane make-work projects you
were ordered to do? But your buddy was always there along side you, making the wise-crack, helping you make
it though each day, maybe even covering for you on occasion.

Your buddy still needs you!!!

Maybe your buddy is in one of the VA hospitals; his war wounds and/or time have taken its toll on his body.
Maybe he or she is a young veteran, just discharged from service in Iraq, Afghanistan or Vietnam, and is
having difficulty finding a civilian job. Maybe your buddy is just an ordinary guy or gal like yourself,
wanting to share stories and comradeship with someone who was in a similar situation.

The American Legion is the place for you to help your buddy and for your buddy to help you.
Founded in 1918, it is the largest veteran's organization in the United States with over 3 million members.

We have a funeral honor guard detail ready, willing and able at the family's request.
Our funeral detail is available to all veterans. When requested, we are also available to help
other veteran organizations with their memorials.
