Troop Shipping

The American Legion Auxiliary sends shipments to our troops over seas in Afghanistan and Iraq.  All items can be dropped off in our beautiful new wooden box located next to the Honor MIA table. A cash donation box is located to the right of it (see photo below).


It cost quite a bit to ship items, so any donations would be greatly appreciated. 

Each box costs approximately $16 to send.

Please make checks payable to the American Legion Auxiliary and reference “Iraq/Afghanistan Troop packages” Thank you.
