Prior to his work as a claims supervisor in Wilkes-Barre, PA, Daniel “Dan” Hohal was part of the United States Air Force. Apart from his professional work on complex insurance claims, Daniel Hohal continues to be a part of the veteran community - and particularly with The American Legion Riders.
The American Legion Riders are a subset of The American Legion, an organization made up of veterans who help each other before and after their service has ended.
The riders engage in The American Legion Legacy Run each year. This year marks the 11th anniversary of the annual charity motorcycle run, which is sponsored by the USAA. For the third year in a row, the Legacy Run has raised more than $1 million for The Legacy Fund (this time totaling $1,155,363).
This money will go into the college funds of children of military personnel killed during active duty on or after September 11, 2001. The funds are also shared with the children of post-9/11 veterans who have a 50 percent or higher VA disability rating.
