The American Legion Family has called upon Congress to designate May 26, 2017, as National Poppy Day to expand awareness and provide support everywhere for all who have served and sacrificed in the U.S. Armed forces. The American Legion Auxiliary has been conducting a Poppy Program for many years and their members' raise over $6 million annually to provide support for veterans, military servicemembers and their families. A new webpage on the American Legion website provides multiple ways people can expand awareness locally and regionally. Also through the website, National Poppy Day donors can make safe, secure contributions that directly support military veterans and families through American Legion programs.
