In support of the growth and success of The University of Akron American Legion Post 808, UA is establishing both an American Legion Auxiliary and an American Legion Sons of The American Legion Squadron to further aid the mission of Post 808.
A collaborative effort by the American Legion, UA and the Department of Veterans Affairs, the mission of Post 808 is to aid the successful reintegration of veterans into the community. The focus is on recruitment, retention, mentoring and networking with veteran alumni who have both academic and work experience to guide UA’s student-veterans in their newest journey. With these combined resources, student-veterans are offered more engagement with the academic portion of their college experience, along with preparation for graduation, employment and career development.
Founded in 1932, Sons of The American Legion honors the service and sacrifice of Legionnaires. S.A.L. members are men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. Caring for veterans and their families is one of the organization’s missions.
The American Legion Auxiliary, founded in 1919, is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. Veterans, the military and their families are served through the auxiliary's outreach programs, which are delivered by members, volunteers and its national headquarters.
If you are interested in volunteering for either of these University of Akron Legion Post 808 organizations, please contact Mary Rossett at email@example.com or ext. 7382.
