Continuing Our Legacy of Safety and Service to Our Heroes
What is the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) National Security Program?
The ALA National Security program maintains and promotes a strong national defense by strengthening and supporting military servicemembers and their families.
What Can You Do?
A. Support the emotional and social needs of active, reserve and transitioning military servicemembers and their families.
Collaborate with Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program, Operation Homefront, Operation Comfort Warriors, Heroes to Hometowns, POW/MIA Initiatives, USO affiliates, and ROTC/JROTC units as a means to care for our active duty military when serving, hospitalized, in transition, and as they return to civilian life.
B. Assist military spouses in getting and maintaining employment.
Serve as a mentor in the career e-mentoring network through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Employment Program and Academy Women.
Promote military spouse job fairs in your community and volunteer to help.
C. Support the National Security programs of The American Legion.
Complete a Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) course. Refer to How to Train for FEMA’s Community Emergency Response Teams for information and specific steps.
Sign up for the Legion’s Legislative Action Alerts and be sure to act on the ones regarding a strong national defense and affecting current and transitioning servicemembers and their families.
