Leading the Way by Donating Blood

Did you know that The American Legion is the largest collective blood-donor to the Red Cross? The American Legion adopted Resolution 33, calling for our organziation to assist in Homeland Security preparedness - the blood supply is a matter of Homeland Security.

The most important part about donating blood is to remember that it saves lives.  Waiting for an emergency to donate will not get the blood to the receiver in time.
