The National American Legion’s Heroes to Hometowns Program assists in transitioning disabled members
of our Armed Services from Military Severely Injured Centers back to their homes. The care the Legion
provides does not stop there, it is there for as long as the disabled service member needs it.
No matter what your feelings about the War on Terror, or the political feelings that you have, the “Heroes
to Hometowns” program has nothing to do with the politics of war or the politics of politics. What it does
have to do with is making our severely injured military members as comfortable as possible after a life
altering injury. These brave men and women deserve our respect and support and this is your opportunity
to help out and make a difference.
Since July of 2007 The National American Legion has used the Military Teddy Bears as a fund raiser to
help offset the huge costs associated with equipping a disabled service member’s home with the features
he or she will need to go about their daily activities.
For detailed information about this program please visit Heroes to Hometowns on the Legion’s Site. You
will find the link to US Military Bears located on the Legion’s Resources page under Fundraising.
Each of these magnificent bears is put on active duty by a disabled American Veteran and brought to life
in Connecticut, whether the request is for one, five or thirty bears each one is made one at a time, there
are no huge warehouses of Army, Air Force, Marine or Navy bears.
All of the military bears meet a very high standard that we have imposed. We have ensured that we would
proudly display or give a service member one of our teddy creations. It is of the utmost importance that the
uniforms our bears wear also proudly represent the American Military and meet the standards of the
Your support of this program is going to provide a vast amount of help to disabled veterans, from the
creators of the bears to severely wounded coming home from the “War on Terror”.
When you order a Military Bear for $35.95 shipping within the continental United States is included and
a generous donation is made to the Legion’s Heroes to Hometowns Program.
