Connect with the commander

During his stint as national commander, Clarence Hill stressed the need for himself and Legionnaires everywhere to embrace social media Web sites like Facebook. Current National Commander Jimmie Foster is following in his predecessor's footsteps.

Foster recently entered the world of social networking with the launch of his Facebook page. There, Legionnaires and Facebook users from all over the world can connect with the commander, allowing them to receive updates from him as he travels the country and represents the nation's largest veterans organization. Visit his page and click the "Like" button in the top right corner of the page to become a fan. "Fans" of the commander can receive status updates from him in real time, view his personal photos from the road, follow his schedule in the events calendar and interact with him and other Legionnaires.

Just as they were during Hill's tenure, Legionnaires are asked to follow the commander's example and embrace social media. Not only are social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook good avenues to attract younger veterans, they're also mediums that facilitate interaction among fellow members and instill a sense of unity within the Legion's membership ranks. Connect to the commander on his Facebook page and join up with Foster and Legionnaires everywhere.


  1. I am having trouble getting help from any service organization for my POA with a video conference with the board of appeals for a early effective date of my service connection based on a clear and unmistakable error is there any thing you can tell me that might help>
  2. National Commander Foster I hope that you have a great year as National Commander. I know was not easy to get there but you deserve it and we deserve a leader like you. Remember always the legionnaires in Puerto Rico will support your work and this Great Organization The American Legion. See you in Indy. Thank You for your service. God Bless You and Bless America.

  3. Dear Commander; Of the 100,000 returning Native American Veterans with Fifteen years or more combat duty, they are not able to use the Veteran Affairs system because they are Native American, Currently, in California alone there was 120 MILLION Dollars approbated for this and NOONE has any idea where this money is. Sounds like Haliburton all over when money just disappeared in Iraq. Maybe this is going to turn up in some political spaces. I thought you might want to know on American Indian Day, Besides; in the battle of the Aleutians more Inuits and Aleuts won a lot of metals and now their grandsons and granddaughters are returning from another war. What are you going to say that we are wining and now we lost(Germany 1918).
  4. Why does everyone push facebook whats wrong with a phone call? Does ALL veterans organizations just believe we have $2500 laptops and have the time to sit on our asses and twitter!!
