Your Fellow Veterans, Their Families, Your Community Still Needs YOU!!!
Your fellow Veteran is in one of the VA hospitals; his/her war wounds and/or time have taken its toll. Maybe he/she is a young veteran, just discharged from service in Iraq or Afghanistan, and is having difficulty finding a civilian job, or a home. A military family is dealing with the challenges of a spouse, or other family member being deployed and having problems and need support and help. Your community Petaluma can benefit from the experiences and support of a group of veterans who can and want to make a difference. Join American Legion Petaluma
