Operation Comfort Warriors
August 20, 2009
Operation Comfort Warriors provides direct assistance to patients at U.S. military hospitals and warrior transition units in the form of comfort items and other goods that are not normally purchased through government channels. Since December 2008, The American Legion Family has received over $170,000 in donations which resulted in sweat suits, DVDs, puzzles, electronics, books, calling cards, and other comfort items to the wounded heroes.
Previously, The American Legion sponsored another fundraising endeavor, Operation Landstuhl and raised over $335,000 for wounded soldiers in the military hospital at Landstuhl, Germany.
