Veterans are looking for a few things after getting out of the military and organizations like the American Legion are offering exactly what they are looking for. Learn what the American Legion is all about in this episode.

One of the things that organizations like the American Legion have to offer is a sense of belonging. We all had a place in our units. Whether we were the lowest ranking Private, the CO or anywhere in between, we had a place. We were important. We belonged.

The American Legion gives you that sense of belonging. They have ample volunteer opportunities so you can help others with your expertise.

Even bigger than the sense of belonging though is access to the vast knowledge of the older veterans who have come before you. Do you really think that your readjustment to civilian life is unique? Those older Vietnam, Korea, and WWII vets went through that and more. They've screwed up from time to time, and then they've figured things out.

Who in their right mind wouldn't want to have access to that type of a mentor? Pull up a seat at the bar next to someone who walked in your shoes a few decades earlier.

There's a lot more than that going on at the American Legion. If you want to find out more listen to the episode and then visit the American Legion's website or social media to become a member and learn more.
