Educating our children about American history is extremely important to our country’s civic health. “Star Spangled Kids” is the American Legion Auxiliary initiative to educate our youth about United States history, Americanism, and the U.S. Constitution.
ALA Units sponsor Star Spangled Kids activities in conjunction with local schools and youth groups. Some activities include:
"Nothing I can ever do will truly be enough to say ‘thank you’ to them [veterans], but I can do my best by representing them through the American Legion Auxiliary.”
