Past Department of Ohio Commander Jerry Wilson of Yeager Benson Memorial Post, Harrison, Ohio, presented a check from Ohio Charities Inc. for $10,000 to the American Legion Riders Legacy Fund at the 101st American Legion National Convention in Indianapolis.
The American Legion ensures higher education is a possibility for children whose parents lost their lives while serving our country. The American Legion expanded the scholarship to include children of VA-rated, post-9/11 veterans with a combined disability rating of 50 percent or higher. The American Legion and the Legion Riders offer support through the Legacy Scholarship Fund.
