We've published our legislative priorities for the 116th Congress, focusing on topics such as fully funding a national defense, improving health care for women #veterans & expanding eligibility in The American Legion.

Since 1988, the Sons of The American Legion have donated nearly $8 million to our Child Welfare Foundation. The CWF raises donations and awards grants to organizations that help #children. https://www.legion.org/childwelfare/244798/sal-donations-cwf-approach-8m-mark … #LegionFamily

One of the most iconic moments in @ALBoysNation history. Their interaction was brief ... but video and photos capturing the event show @BillClinton’s admiration and near disbelief that he was meeting one of his political idols. https://www.biography.com/news/john-f-kennedy-bill-clinton-handshake-1963 … via @biography

866 Informal Hearing Presentations prepared by The American Legion for #veterans disputing VA benefits claims decisions & 812 BVA cases decided w/ assistance from Legion veterans disability claims specialists highlight our Feb.

I was there- The speaker at ceremony- “Before today James McCue had no family, today we are his family.” It was so moving seeing everyone there, police, fire, veteran groups, disabled veterans, color guards, student ROTC members, etc... Beautiful send off.

Great to see #burnpits getting attention again, will be interesting to see if anything starts to move now in the new Congress after more than a decade of strong reporting on the subject https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123187642 … https://www.stripes.com/news/dod-not-enforcing-burn-pit-rules-gao-finds-1.122426 …
