The American Legion Legacy Restoration Project
The Legion Legacy Project fundraising efforts began in 2012 as the initial Forward March project. The impetus for renovating the historic C.F.Hamblen House and headquarters of American Legion Post #37 was St. Augustine’s 450th Commemoration in 2015. Funds were raised by sponsoring three St. Augustine military balls, obtaining the Florida Historic Preservation Grant and many private donations.
Forward March Inc. has now completed its commitment to the Hamblen House renovation.
The Veterans Council of St. Johns County
Forward March Inc. contributed $35,000 of the 2018 Military Ball proceeds to the Veterans Council of St. Johns County, specifically to the Veterans Treatment Court, Vets 4 Vets, Disabled American Veterans, and Wreaths Across America.
