Veterans never stop serving with American Legion

Long after they return from active wartime duty, members of the American Legion in Door and Kewaunee Counties are finding ways to help serve their fellow veterans and community members. It could be as complex as helping veterans navigate the benefits they earned by serving in the military or as simple as helping support a local baseball team. Sturgeon Bay Post 72 Commander Deb Logerquist says it also supports Camp American Legion in Lake Tomahawk, where Wisconsin veterans can go to a safe place with their families.

With over two million members spread out over 12,000 posts nationwide, including eight in Door and Kewaunee Counties, American Legion is the largest veterans organization in the country. Logerquist says that is important as they continue to advocate for more help from the federal government for veterans.
