Mlitary.com honors and remembers the fallen.
The American Legion supports the children of parents who died while on active duty military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001 through its renewable scholarship, the Legacy Scholarship. This includes legally adopted children or children of a spouse by a prior marriage. The Legacy Scholarship helps high school seniors preparing to attend college, or graduates working toward an undergraduate degree, with the expense of tuition, books, room and board, and other supplies needed to achieve a higher education. If you or someone you know is eligible for the Legacy Scholarship, download a 2016 application from the American Legion website. The 2016 completed applications must be postmarked to American Legion National Headquarters by April 1. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
