April is Children and Youth Month

  • Friday, April 11, 2014

The American Legion recognizes April as Children and Youth Month. The American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of the Legion and the Legion Riders devote countless hous of service to our children and veterans nationwide. The American Legion and Auxiliary have children and youth programs such as Boys State, Girls State, the Law Cadet Program, Legion Baseball, the Oratorical Competition and the Child Welfare Foundation. The American Legion supports Boys Scouts. The American Legion provides college scholarships to youngsters who have lost a parent in military service through The American Legion Legacy Scholarship program.

Commander Ed Jayroe of Andrews Post 69 recognizes our children as the future of our nation. The American Legion has published booklets such as “Gateway Drugs,” “Child Safety” and “How To Prevent Youth Suicide.” The American Legion encourages youngsters to avoid drugs, alcohol, gangs and bullying along with setting education and career goals early in life.

Information about The American Legion Children & Youth programs can be found at www.legion.org. Eligible veterans are invited to join their local American Legion Post. The Andrews American Legion can be contacted at (843)543-4652 and it meets on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at 1067 N. Morgan Avenue in Andrews.

For God & Country,

Greg Bennett

Children & Youth Officer, Post 69
