The American Legion’s Economic Commission operates a number of programs, provides outreach and testifies before Congress in order to help veterans make the transition from military to civilian life. This important arm of service has a place upon the Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation pillar but stands as an independent division of the organization. The work of the division can be divided into three main parts: jobs for veterans, business opportunities, and education. Support for homeless veterans also fits into the division’s portfolio of service.
