The American S.T.A.R.H. Foundation

Supporting Troops After Returning Home

Associate and Affiliated Partner Mandate

In addition to the many services provided to veterans, the American S.T.A.R.H. Foundation also seeks to partner with various other veteran-based organizations which possess the same ideals and commitments to our returning heroes. Those same commitments to which we adhere and endeavor to uphold daily.

We strongly believe that the more viable organizations that exist, dedicated to the sole purpose of taking care of our nation’s veterans, the better chances they have in readjusting to civilian life and establishing themselves as a productive and stable citizen.

If at any time we are unable to execute a plan of assistance for any veteran in need, we will not hesitate to reach out to other veteran-based organizations. To assure that the veteran’s needs are met with dignity and honor in an expeditious and caring manner.

     The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, servicemembers and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country. Today, membership stands at nearly 2 million in more than 13,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.
