Along with the other members of our Legion Family; the Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the Legion and the Legion Riders, we’re committed to mentoring youth, sponsoring and supporting community programs and events, advocating patriotism and honor, and promoting strong national security.
Veterans Strengthening America
Post 423 Supports Our Turn to Serve
During the monthly Post meeting on Tuesday, 10/30, Post Commander Claude Hale presented a $500 donation to Our Turn to Serve (OTTS) on behalf of the Post. OTTS finds, rescues, and trains service dogs, matching dogs with veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at no cost to the veteran.
The Roanoke based organization, originally provided home renovations to disabled veterans. However, its sole mission now is to provide, train and match service dogs with veterans.
