The scholarship is for $1000. If you know of anyone interested contact me for an application or contact the department headquarters. 

Missouri Veterans History Project (MVHP): Many Legionnaires/Veterans have been interviewed for the MVHP and received their CD copy of the interview. This worthy veteran and Missouri VHP project provides future generations of a rich history of all our servicemen and women throughout the Great Wars and into the present time. Please contact Linda Kaye Payton, Ann Roberts, or Donna Payne for a time and date to be interviewed. Remember, a veteran did not have to fight in any war; just that he/she served in the military. Thank you for your service.
