Can I wear my American Legion cap to a political event? NO!
The American Legion cap is considered the official legion uniform

If attending a political event, The American Legion cap, or any clothing with
The American Legion emblem visible, must be removed so as not to imply any
endorsement by The American Legion.

Wesley’s Way Foundation is excited to announce that a playground is going to be
built in Wesley’s memory at Green Acres School in Manchester, NH in 2021!
Over the past few months, we have been working with Where Angels Play Foundation
to plan this major project. Where Angels Play Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
that has built over 50 playgrounds across the country. Their mission is to create joyful places
to play and to provide hope and recovery for families in the wake of tragedy.
We are so very honored that this foundation has chosen to build a playground in memory of
Wesley. And this will be the first playground to be built by Where Angels Play Foundation
in New Hampshire!
