  • The Children & Youth program emphasizes protecting, caring for, and supporting children and youth, particularly those of veterans’ and military families.

  • To recognize and reward the positive actions of our children and youth, the American Legion Auxiliary has two special national awards bestowed to youth nominated by units: the Youth Hero Award and the Good Deed Award.

  • Kids of Deployed are Heroes 2 (KDH2) is an initiative honoring military children who may be experiencing a separation from one or both parents, whether deployed to a war zone, having a short tour or on an extended temporary duty assignment. 

  • The American Legion Auxiliary Children & Youth program strives to support and promote the Children & Youth program of The American Legion.
