Inspiring actions often inspire others to action. The American Legion Auxiliary’s prestigious Public Spirit Award recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations for contributions that positively impact communities through service to our military, veterans, and their families. Every year, we celebrate those who make a difference through a creative body of work or even a single generous act. Previous recipients have included U.S. presidents and government officials as well as regular citizens who saw a need and took action. Established in 1983, this award is presented at the American Legion Auxiliary’s annual Washington DC Conference. The recipient is selected by the American Legion Auxiliary national president and must be present to accept the award.
