This is a short video that could change your life. This disabled vet was told he would never walk unassisted again after too many paratrooper drops in the Gulf War took their toll on his back and knees. He gained a lot of weight and gave up on life. This video is one of the most incredible and inspirational videos and will help you to know that no matter what, you can do anything if you want it badly enough! It’s short and powerful, take a moment to lift your day!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Commander welcomes home returning vets
INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 13, 2013) -- American Legion National Commander James E. Koutz responded to President Obama's State of the Union Address Tuesday with a word of welcome to 34,000 troops the president said would be coming home from Afghanistan this year.
"American Legion service officers stand ready to support our men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and help them understand their VA benefits. American Legion-sponsored job fairs and business workshops await their return, offering opportunities to convert military experience into successful careers. American Legion posts and individual members are available for those who come home wondering where to turn for camaraderie and support. That is what we do. It is who we are."
In line with the goal of continuing a legacy of service U.S. military veterans and their families, the American Legion Department of Illinois will be kicking off its annual caravan, with 19 currently scheduled Post stops and numerous visits to V.A. clinics around the state.
A complete schedule of stops is located at http://www.ILLegion.org.
According to National Vice Commander David R. Hall, "This annual event provides us with direct contact with our members, whose activities in their communities make the difference for thousands of veterans and their families throughout the year, and open the doors to potential members who can learn how to get involved in supporting the critical work of the American Legion."

Many Veterans and their families have experienced delays and difficulty receiving benefits and services, not in just this conflict, but in the past. Many Veterans and their families may not be aware of programs and/or help available in such areas as Healthcare, Employment, Housing, Education, Pro Bono Legal Help, PTSD Counseling, Grants, Discounts and many other benefits and programs that have not been brought to the awareness of the Veteran Community through lack of media interest or budget constraints. We will endeavor to post any legitimate websites and contact information that will overcome their challenges.
Our Television Channel will provide a National Network
that includes a State by State breakdown of these programs
with entertaining shows that the whole population will enjoy.
