National Commander

National Commander Dan Dellinger watched a screening of the film "When the Game Stands Tall."

Seventy years ago this month, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the GI Bill.

The Legion calls upon members to contact the White House and ask President Barack Obama to demand the release of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

The national commander is the executive head of The American Legion, with full power to enforce provisions of the Legion's constitution, bylaws and resolutions of the national convention, which meets each year to govern the organization.

Commander's Message

It really is a system worth saving

Scrapping VA will not help veterans, but The American Legion is resolved to help fix our healthcare system.


National Emergency Fund (NEF)

My commander’s project will be to raise $1 million for the NEF. It’s a very lofty goal, but one that equates to about 50 cents per member. We can do it. Given the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, Hurricane Sandy and other hurricanes, and the deadly wild fires in the western states, the question is not if a natural disaster will hit, but when and where. So I encourage you to support fundraisers for this most worthy cause.  Learn more »
