The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization and Hollywood Post 43 has a historic relationship with show business. Since 1932, over 200 actors and actresses have been inducted as Honorary Colonels.

In addition to her 40 years on Y&R, Linder has done four USO tours with the late Johnny Grant and has spent Thanksgivings visiting troops in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Korea to boost morale, also visiting Guantanamo Bay to send off deploying troops from Fort Hood.

Congratulations again!
