The American Legion actively participates in numerous outreach efforts for veterans seeking employment or business opportunities after military service. The Legion aggressively lobbies for veterans preference laws and compliance with laws designed to provide incentives for disabled-veteran entrepreneurship. Similarly, the Legion’s Economic Commission assists in job and career fairs throughout the country and works to protect the careers and benefits of reservists and National Guardsmen during military deployments.
The Legion’s Business Task Force is composed of veteran entrepreneurs who give regular workshops and conferences to help veterans draft business plans, learn about their benefits and help them compete for government contracts.
