Recognizing American Legion Legacy Partners Helping to Fight Veterans Hunger

During the months of February and March 2022, Us4Warriors stopped by American Legion Posts 365 in Vista, California and Post 434 in Chula Vista, California to recognize their organizations as legacy partners who have supported our Food4Warriors Program since being established in 2016. Us4Warriors Board of Doers President Carlos "Danny" Carreon made the presentations in recognition of their longstanding support of Us4Warriors and hosting of the Food4Warriors Food Drop distributions at their locations. Each of these American Legion Posts hold fond distinction among Us4Warriors members. American Legion Post 434 in Chula Vista is the birthplace of Us4Warriors with each co-founder being post members and the post providing space for many of the original formation and strategy meetings. The inception of Us4Warriors was sparked and aligned with many of the local American Legion activities. Equally, American Legion Post 365 was one of the first locations to come forward in support of the Food4Warriors program and has been a mainstay for over 6 years. Both were strong forces during the recent pandemic. For that, President Carreon presented Post Commander John Paisley of American Legion Post 434 and Post Commander Bret Olson of American Legion Post 365 with special plaques to commemorate the moment and partnership for years to come. Us4Warriors appreciates the commitment of Legionnaires everywhere and thanks all who support a cause that is aligned with many efforts of the Four Pillars that each dedicate themselves to every day. We are thankful for the Legacy Partnership of the American Legion in supporting Us4Warriors in helping the troops, Veterans and their families live stronger lives.
