Provide Job Fairs
and Job Training for Veterans.

Help The American Legion Win $250,000

We owe it to these heroes.
The American Legion is committed to helping military veterans find jobs. The Legion's career fairs are competing in this month's Pepsi Refresh Everything Project. If the effort succeeds, The American Legion will be awarded a $250,000 grant to sponsor job events across the country, pairing employers with veterans looking for work.

"The unemployment rate among Iraq and Afghanistan veterans exceeds 14 percent. This is a national disgrace!" said American Legion National Commander Clarence E. Hill. "Every veteran vowed to defend America and protect our way of life. The least we can do is to allow them an opportunity to support their families and contribute to America's workforce. Additionally, job fairs sponsored by The American Legion include Small Business Development Workshops so veterans can pursue the American dream."

We owe it to these heroes - vote every day until August 31! Vote here.

"Individual voting alone will not win this competition," said American Legion Auxiliary National President Rita Navarreté. "We need people to post it on their websites, Facebook and Twitter accounts. They should use all social media methods at their disposal. Voting online daily for this important program is the least we can do - and our impact will be huge."
