The preamble to the Constitution of The American Legion is truly clear on our responsibility to veterans regarding benevolence.
- To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation
- To consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.
Peter J Courcy Post 178 takes this obligation very seriously with our benevolence program.
The mission of our benevolence efforts is to help veterans and their families get through difficult times, regardless of the need or nature.
Veterans can request assistance by contacting the Post Chaplain.
