Legion releases report on election issues

The American Legion has published a special report on key election issues geared toward candidates for national office, their challengers, voters and others who are interested.

The 28-page report, “Our Pillars, Your Platform,” pinpoints the Legion’s stand on the most critical issues of today such as veterans health care, jobs and education for returning servicemembers, immigration, benefits and more. Each of the four pillars of the Legion are covered: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth.

The report was produced on behalf of the Legion’s more than 2.4 million members, the wartime veterans of the 20th and 21st centuries who can be found in 14,000 posts and in nearly every community in the U.S.

  1. I applaud the Legion on the stances they have taken and described in the "Our Pillars, Your Platform" report. I also know that the Junior Shooting Program is a necessary program to educate our youth in the safety and use of firearms. Since the program uses .177 air rifles, how does the Legion stand on 2nd Amendment Rights of Veterans?
