Claims Coach
The American Legion has always been on the front lines helping
fellow veterans and their families ease the transition from military
service into civilian life. One of the many ways we help with this
process is by assisting veterans filing for Department of Veterans
Affairs benefits.

This summer, The American Legion developed a new mobile
application for veterans and their families. The Claims Coach app
helps veterans and their families connect with a service officer and
navigate the VA claims process.

In order to improve the app’s functionality, The American Legion
now is seeking input from those veterans using the app. By
downloading the app and then participating in a short online
questionnaire, you can help us improve the Claims Coach and
make it an even better tool.  Click the below link to start.

Little Warriors Project
April is Children & Youth Month.

This year, a request has been made for Auxiliary members to donate items to the Landstuhl
Regional Medical Center Pediatric Unit in Germany. Their Pediatric/ Pregnancy Unit is the only
high risk unit in Europe and delivers more than 100 babies a month. They are in need of
supplies and have asked for our help. Landstuhl Hospital is our connection to our service men
and women and it is our honor and responsibility to be able to help when a request is received,
especially for these “littlest warriors”.
