Pat Grzybowski, 1st District, Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Committee Chairman
The American Legion has for nearly 95 years acted as the nation’s leading advocate for proper health care, economic opportunity and legal benefits for U.S. military veterans. The Legion was instrumental in the creation of the Veterans Administration in 1930 and an ardent supporter of its elevation to cabinet status when it became the Department of Veterans Affairs in 1989. The relationship between VA and The American Legion continues to evolve today.
From October 2015 to June 2016, The American Legion has assisted in bringing $255 million dollars to veterans in the State of Ohio!
