MAY WE CULTIVATE CURIOSITY WHILE CHOOSING CLARITY OVER CHAOS; CELEBRATE CREATIVITY WHILE CHOOSING CONNECTEDNESS OVER COMPARISON; AND CURATE CONFIDENCE WHILE CHOOSING COURAGE OVER COMFORT.
Legacy Magazine is a publication for service members families and their communities that operates from the premise that every individual is designed on purpose and for a purpose - with unique experiences, qualities, and strengths that can be used for the betterment of our communities.
Through a strength-based approach, we incorporate elements of personal narrative, creative expression, and self-development to further equip and inspire individuals in their endeavors.
We hope to offer the voice of a friend and mentor during times of celebration, transition, and growth. We believe truth is attractive and that individuals are hungry for substance and depth, amidst all the noise.
A few years ago, we recognized the lack of a centralized publication that celebrated the variety of meaningful paths available to our unique service member families. We saw the opportunity to raise the bar and curate the inspiring stories of celebration, transition, and growth in a tasteful and uplifting way.
In 2015, while our editor-in-chief was working alongside veteran- and spouse-owned organizations, the idea of turning these experiences into a publication was first born. Then, in 2016, our core team came together and decided to turn our education and experience into a magazine that would celebrate and inspire the community.
Before embarking on the journey, our team laid out our core values as a guiding azimuth so we can engage the greater community while offering content that is both aesthetically appealing and full of depth.

INTRODUCING LEGACY KIDS
In late 2019, Daena Vandre brought the idea of a military children’s publication to our editor-in-chief. Recognizing the need to foster young, creative minds, as well as cultivate community and kinship among our military children, Daena and Legacy teamed up to birth this opportunity.
We believe that military children, of all ages, need a creative outlet to showcase their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. At the very core of this publication we envisioned empowering, enlightening, and uncovering the truths of children growing up in an unconventional lifestyle. Through bright, bold, and vibrant content Legacy Kids Magazine embraces the courage and curiosity of our younger generations.FEATURED BY
