As members of The American Legion, Department of Florida, we ought to be proud of our long history of service to all veterans; from our WW-I founders in 1919 to those returning from deployment overseas today.

And, as you know, The American Legion has fought for and brought great change for the well-being of our veterans; whether it be for the GI Bill, or the creation of the Veterans Administration. It is up to us, both you and me, to continue what our forefathers started 99 years ago, by advocating for all our veterans to ensure that they receive the benefits they earned with their service!

You have twelve chances to win the $10,000 Grand Prize or one of our other cash prizes for just $30. It could be you! Please return your tickets and donation no later than June 27, 2018. It would be an honor for me to announce your name as the Grand Prize winner during our Annual Department Convention at the Orlando World Center Marriott, July 7, 2018; however, you don’t need to be present to win.

On behalf of the 1,520,563 veterans in Florida, thank you for your continued generosity and support.
