HELP find Maryland Vietnam Veterans who were KIA.
We have been asked by the Department of Maryland to assist them
in finding photos of Maryland Vietnam Vets who were KIA.
Commander Trott received a message from a Veteran and professor
at Stevenson University that has been on a mission to find
photographs of all KIA from the Vietnam War from Maryland.
There are still 70 photographs of veterans that have not been
located. To read the entire message from the Department of
Maryland, click on the link (Message) below. To see the

DEPARTMENT OF MARYLAND SURVEY
(Please read and participate)
We need your help in identifying Veterans (especially females) to take a short survey about The American Legion.
Please advertise to your membership in newsletters for them to take the survey for use by Department of Maryland. The Women's Veteran Outreach Committee developed the survey and are seeking the insights.
While some questions in the survey we are looking solely for a female point of view on the issue, anyone can complete the survey.
Please try to get this to Veterans and Legion members that are female. The Legion membership database did not track and the Legion did not collect the gender of new members until 2013, so there is little information about our membership in regards to gender, that is where Posts can help.
Survey can be found at:
This survey is conducted to determine the involvement of Veterans who are female in the American Legion Department of Maryland and to look at ways to possibly build on that membership as well as identify barriers to these Veterans joining and becoming actively involved. No personally indentifying information is requested. If you decide to speak about any experiences you have had, all personal information will be confidential. The purpose of this survey is to collect information regarding this specific subset of veterans, to describe their experiences as members and their participation within the American Legion. A report will be issued upon completion of the survey results. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Department at firstname.lastname@example.org
