Veteran Benefits Assistance
Veterans don’t have to stand alone in the in their battle for benefits and medical care. Our Department Service Officers help veterans and family members weed through the paperwork and bureaucracy of government in order to get the benefits and medical care deserved.
The American Legion department service officers offer free advice and guidance for veterans who need the services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) regardless of whether or not they are members of The American Legion.
Honor Guard & Color Guard
When our Honor Guards pay tribute to our veterans, we want to make sure that it is done in a proper military manner. We give our veterans not only a tribute but individual recognition for his or her service to their country, and for some it may have been the ultimate sacrifice. Let us honor them the way they honored their country, and to never forget those who did not come home.
Additionally, our Color Guards are available by request for posting colors at special events and marching in parades across Indiana. Click below to request an Honor/Color Guard from The American Legion, Department of Indiana.
